Joanna Rzezak
I am an artist and illustrator living in Paris. 
I was born in Warsaw, Poland. 
I consider myself a multidisciplinary artist working on painting, illustration, design and children book projects. In my work I like to juggle between various techniques as aquarelle, pencil, pen and digital.
I grew up and studied Fine Arts in Warsaw but today I live in France where I work in a small parisian atelier. I collaborate with designers, architects and editors (French and foreign). I published 6 children books as an author and a few more as an illustrator. My books appeared in France, USA, UK, China, Corea, Poland, Italy, Denmark, Turkey and Spain.
