About me

My name is Raluca and I am a professional illustrator passionate about everything colourful and narrative. I love creating vibrant character-focused illustrations, and I always try my very best to allow the character's personality to shine through! I am also passionate about storytelling, and have worked on projects such as children's books and board games for kids! My style is very bright and colourful, and I love making others happy with my illustrations!

 

Beside art, I am a huge fan of traveling, video games, theme parks and anime.
