Lo­ca­tion: US Web:­bec­ca­ Email: solow­illus­tra­tion@ya­ me­dia: Mixed me­dia Re­becca has been il­lus­trat­ing young adult fan­tasy book cov­ers, chil­dren’s books and mag­a­zine sto­ries since 2006. “I take in­spi­ra­tion from folk and fairy tales from around the world, and es­pe­cially sto­ries with strong and pos­i­tive fe­male char­ac­ters,” she says.

Her Rus­sian her­itage means she’s fa­mil­iar with the art and history of east­ern Europe, which also in­forms her art: “I use acrylic and tinted gesso to paint over de­tailed graphite draw­ings.” She en­joys liv­ing next to the Na­tional Zoo in Wash­ing­ton, DC, and can of­ten be found vis­it­ing her an­i­mal neigh­bours.
