Hi I'm Elizabeth Savanella, a New York based kid lit creator with awards from Mom's Choice and Royal Dragonfly. I've illustrated 17 books and counting!

Until 2019 I made my living illustrating books for other authors. Now I'm also focussing on writing and illustrating my own narrative non fiction book dummies most of which center around sweet-but-silly, weird-but-true anecdotes.


I enjoy studying clothing/architectural details etc. and I work hard to break them down to simple shapes that are accessible and fun for kids to look at. My work is greatly inspired by the amazing Eric Carle and Mary Blair.

In addition to publishing work, I'm also proud to be a print artist with the leading US print studio, Design Works International! I draw holiday characters and icons that go on to be used on all types of consumer products. I love drawing holiday themes and would be thrilled to do more books based around holidays and traditions!

I'm constantly learning, growing and updating this site so check back here often!
