Claudia Marianno is an illustrator from Sao Paulo, Brazil. For many years she worked as a graphic designer in an educational design studio and then on magazines at Brazilian publisher, Editora Abril. But in the evenings and weekends she worked as an illustrator. She has been illustrating full-time since 2017 for clients such as Editora do Brasil, FTD, Moderna, SM Educação.
Claudia holds a BA degree in Architecture and Urbanism from the University of Sao Paulo (but she has never worked as an architect!).
Dyslexia meant she struggled with communication as a child and she started drawing to express herself without words. She found her love of books at 10, and was hooked on everything from Machado de Assis to Agatha Christie.
Claudia has a passion for creating detailed, urban, crowded scenes. She’s obsessed with Victorian England and the impressionism movements.
She now lives with her seven stray cats in Indaiatuba, a countryside town so small that it doesn't have a single bookstore!
