Anait Semirdzhyan


Hi! My name is Anait. I'm an illustrator living in Seattle.

Art has always been a big part of my life. I spent hours copying Disney characters as a kid. Much later my passion for creating characters and capturing their emotions led me to children's book illustration. I joined the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI), and now most of my time is dedicated to drawing for kids.

Although my favorite tools are traditional Pen & Ink and watercolor, I also work digitally and am always eager to try new media and learn new techniques.

My artistic style is an amalgam of diverse cultures of different countries I had lived in. My goal is to give my illustrations feelings and emotions, rather than perfect lines, and let you experience it!
