Izabela Ciesinska's Profile
Izzi was hatched in a small town in Poland where her earliest influences were traditional Fairytale Classics by Hans Christian Andersen and the Grimm Brothers (she read them all, drew them all, and she smelled all the pages).
When she was seven her family settled in Canada where she discovered libraries, more books, and to her delight Disney cartoons! She immersed herself into the world of animation and watched and drew anything she could get her hands on. She even animated her own scenes only to discover that tracing 24 frames per second was easier seen than done.
Her ambitions as an animator evolved into filmmaker, and many broken pencils and torn-up pictures later she moved on to illustrate over thirty books, as well as write, direct, and produce her first short film, "NEDE". She is currently working on multiple illustration projects…
