Villie was born in Athens and studied illustration at Ornerakis School of Applied Art. Having worked as a children’s book illustrator since 2008, she loves creating playful characters, interesting compositions and giving emphasis on colour, working often digitally, but also traditionally, with a fresh and whimsical style.
Villie gets much inspiration from her cat, and also from life, experiences and dreams. Her favourite children’s story is ‘The Little Prince’ by Antoine de Saint-Exupery. Her life ambition is to own a horse, but she’s happy to settle for a cat, for the time being!
