Martyna Gradziel

I'm an illustrator and graphic designer whose portfolio spans picture books, posters and book covers. I create vibrant, bold and playful compositions while experimenting with printmaking, drawing and collage. I’m always on the lookout for interesting shapes and exciting colour combinations I could use in my work.
