Hello! I’m Yessica.

I’m an author/illustrator, currently based in Cambridge, UK. In February 2019 I graduated from the MA Children’s Book Illustration at Cambridge School of Art (Anglia Ruskin University).

Children are such a great audience to make stories for. I draw a lot of inspiration from my childhood in the early nineties, a long-gone era with an abundance of oversized bright-coloured jumpers and rotary dial telephones. Film is also a huge source of inspiration for my work. The characters in my stories are either on a personal emotional quest or caught in an outlandish universe with its own ridiculous rules. Or both, if they’re lucky.

I generally work with mixed-media and a limited palette of bold colours.
