zanna allen illustration

Zanna is a freelance illustrator living and working by the Kentish coast.
Projects have ranged from books to logo design with clients including Palgrave Macmillan, University of Liverpool and the H G Wells Society.

Zanna has a fascination with the natural world - her love of wildlife both on land and at sea being a prevailing feature within her work. She is a member of the London based Drawn Chorus Collective - a group of illustrators creating small publications, crafts, zines and exhibitions with a twist!

Her work was selected as one of the Top 25 submissions for the international Folio Society Book Illustration Award.

Alongside freelancing, Zanna is part of the illustrator/potter duo ZAN+ME creating illustrated ceramics.

You can also find unique fine art prints and stationery over on Zanna’s Etsy shop ZANILLO.
