Ever since she was very small, Carolina Rabei has loved drawing. After attaining a BA in Graphic Design in Moldova, she received a distinction in Children’s Book Illustration from the prestigious Cambridge School of Art.
Carolina’s stunning debut picture book illustrating Walter de la Mare's poem, Snow (Faber), was published to critical acclaim, nominated for the esteemed Kate Greenaway Medal, and featured on The Independent's list of '11 Best Books for 4 to 7-Year-Olds'. Carolina went on to illustrate more of de la Mare's work for Faber: The Ride-by-Nights, Summer Evening and Silver.
Carolina is known for building worlds of warmth and heart. Little Lost Fox (Egmont) tells the heartfelt story of friendship in the great outdoors. While her latest picture book, Once You're Asleep (Egmont) is a gloriously reassuring celebration of parental love – perfect for sending even the most restless little ones gently to sleep.
Carolina loves working on a diverse range of projects and her artwork reveals a unique mix of traditional as well as digital techniques.
