Violeta Dabija. Childrens Illustrator in Eastern Europe

August 23, 2011

Violeta Dabija is a freelance children’s book illustrator from Republic of Moldova, Eastern Europe.

She has a strong art background (a BA degree in Fine Arts/Graphic Design) and 5 years experience

as a children’s book illustrator for a major local publishing house. In 2005 she decided to go freelance

and promote her own work.

She says, ” My focus is on producing magic pictures, whimsical and unique environments

for my characters. I keep my work simple and clear but I pay meticulous attention to detail. I work in

both traditional and digital media and I also love combining more familiar and computer techniques

whilst retaining the traditional feel of the illustration”.

I think there is a beautiful dream like quality to her work and a great sense of escapism

for children’s imaginations. Violeta has illustrated over 25 books, some of which you can see here.
