Hi I'm Elizabeth Savanella! I'm available to illustrate picture books, chapter books and covers. I have awards from Mom's Choice and Royal Dragonfly and have illustrated over 17 books to date.

I'm proudly represented by Lori Steel ! I have dummies available upon request and all enquiries for publishing work should go through my agent.

I'm unable to take on self published projects at this time

I'm an illustrator, picture book author, and print artist living and working in the beautiful Hudson Valley just north of New York City. Since completing my BFA in Illustration from Fashion Institute of Technology, my artwork has been published worldwide in books, magazines and on products of all kinds.

In my personal life I support local animal rescue organizations and environmental causes, volunteering whenever possible. I'm the Illustrator Coordinator for the Westchester Chapter of Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators, organizing programming for local illustrators. I love mystery podcasts, music from other times and places, and taking in Broadway shows.


"Elizabeth’s work strongly reflects her love of environmental and cultural themes. Her illustrations are spangled with brightly colored, descriptive elements bursting from each, carefully composed, page."
