Hi, my name is Ilaria!
I was born in Rome, Italy, in the 80’s. Since I was a little girl my biggest love was drawing cute characters. 
In 2014 I moved to Berlin with my husband and two cats, and after several years of working as a graphic designer, I decided it was time to pursue my biggest childhood dream: make a living out of my illustrations!
Now I work as a children's book illustrator for clients and publishers all over the world. I made an online course about Kawaii art on Domestika and I also own an Etsy shop where I sell my illustrations and other merchandising.
I like to sketch my illustrations with just a pencil and then add vibrant colours digitally with the iPad and Procreate.
When I’m not illustrating, I like to enjoy the precious time with my little boy, explore the city, meet good friends, lose myself in bookstores (you will find me in the children's books section of course!), eat pizza or just chilling at home watching a good tv-series. Just so you know, I am obsessed with Friends!
For commissions or questions just drop me a line at ilaria.ranauro@gmail.com
