    Elena Odriozola, National Illustration Award 2015.






Date of birth


" Illustrator. Her work has featured in more than 100 books published by publishing houses in Spain, France, UK, Mexico and Taiwan."

She was born in San Sebastian in 1967. She studied art and decoration and worked in an advertising agency first. In 1997 she started to work as a illustrator, mainly of books, and she is now a successful illustrator of children's and young people's books. He creations are translated into several languages and she is often selected to take part in prestigious illustration exhibitions.

Her main skill is that she is able to reinvent herself while following a very personal and consistent style, and her work has great narrative potential. Her style is characterised mainly by her interpretation of each book and her illustrations that tell the story. They are apparently simple illustrations, with well-defined lines and not many colours.
