Hi I'm Elizabeth Savanella, illustrator of picture books, chapter books and covers. With 17 books and counting I have awards from Mom's Choice and Royal Dragonfly.
I'm proudly represented by Lori Steel at Red Fox Literary! All Inquiries for publishing work should go through my agent. I'm unable to take on self published projects at this time.
I'm your go-to artist to solve illustration problems with creative, eye-pleasing composition!
My work boils down to two things. A deep love of cultures: Whether it's music, media, or fashion, the details of different places and time periods fascinate and inspire me. And a love of animals: I'm an animal advocate and lover of nature, and often focus on relationships between humans and animals in my work.
Until 2019 I made my living illustrating books for other authors. Now I'm also writing and illustrating my own book dummies most of which center around sweet-but-silly, weird-but-true anecdotes. Contact Lori Steel at Red Fox to check them out!
In addition to publishing work, I'm proud to be a print artist with the leading US print studio, Union Square Arts Collective!
I'm constantly learning, growing and updating this site so check back here often!
