Hello, hello!

I am an author and illustrator of children's books and I'm happiest drawing and telling stories. Screen-printing is my media of choice and I'm forever in love with it. I work by hand and like it that my illustrations exist in the real world.

I was born in sunny Rio and brought up in the Brazilian countryside. After studying art and design, I went travelling and came across the MA in Children's Book Illustration at the Cambridge School of Art, from where I graduated in 2014.

Alongside my literary work, I also make contemporary pop paintings. You can check out my art at fabisantiagoart.com.

I work from my studio in London, where I live with a ginger fellow and our two cats.
