Hi, my name is Elena Ceccato, an italian illustrator based in Cremona.
I studied fine arts and editorial illustration between Milan and Bologna,
then specialized in children’s book illustration.
I’ve mastered my technique combining watercolor with colored pencils using gradients and chiaroscuro to create emotional atmospheres.
I’m interested in folktales and scandinavian literature, I watch a lot of movies, and as soon as the opportunity arises I leave for some good adventure, illustrated or not.
Since 2016, I’ve collaborated with various italian publishers including Carthusia and Rizzoli Education and have been recognised in national and international illustration contests.
