Hey there, I’m Violeta, but people often call me Viu (bee-u). I’m an illustrator and graphic designer currently based in sunny Barcelona.
Since I was old enough to hold a pencil with my hand I’ve never stopped drawing. I’ve always had a passion for nice design as well and, for that reason, I ended studying graphic design at BAU, Escola Superior de Disseny in Barcelona, where I learned the fundamentals of design; later I specialized on Illustration at Escola JOSO, also in Barcelona.
I always apply my knowledge of both worlds in my work.
My main interest lies in children’s and juvenile illustration often applied on kid lit art. I like to experiment with styles and techniques, this means I can be very versatile with my illustrations.
In my free time, I like to work on personal projects to stay creative, go for a nice walk in the woods, collect illustrated books or listen to live music whenever I can.
If you are interested in my work, have a project or if you just want to say hi, feel free to contact me here.
