About

Hi, my name is Renia and I'm an illustrator from Greece. I studied graphic design in the Athenian Design College (AKTO) and a few years later,  I studied fashion design, after winning a two-year scholarship.
Since 2014 I work as a full time illustrator, creating books for publishers in Greece and abroad (check the full list here ). I mostly work with pencils and Adobe’s Photoshop but I also use ink, gouache, watercolours and collage. 

In 2017 I was shortlisted for the World Illustration Awards in the children's book category. 
I'm a member of the Greek IBBY (INTERNATIONAL BOARD ON BOOKS FOR YOUNG PEOPLE).

I live a few miles away from Athens, in a small house by the sea, with my husband, our two children and
lots of pets. I love when people tell me that my illustrations make them feel happy. My favorite food is chocolate!

I'm Represented by the Bright Agency worldwide (ex. Greece and Cyprus).
