Hello and thanks for checking out my folio! My name is Joanna Lisowiec (pronounced Lease-oviets), and I am a freelance illustrator and designer living in Yorkshire, England. Originally from Poland and brought up in the U.S. and Switzerland, I came to the U.K to study illustration and fell in love with the wild Scottish highlands and quaint English countryside. I’m known for a bold and moody style of illustration usually focused on beautiful landscapes and animals. I graduated from Edinburgh College of Art with a BA(Hons) in Illustration and also have a MA in Advertising & Design from the University of Leeds. I have worked on a wide range of projects including Folklore Society Gin and Diablesse Rum and have also worked with clients such as the Penguin Random House, Haoma Cosmetics, Edinburgh University Student Association, Thin Ice Press, Saraband Books, Fledgling Press, Zizzi’s, and Couthie.
When I’m not working I can be found with my nose in a book, taking long walks in the countryside, drinking tea and listening to the rain.
