Deborah Stevenson, Children's books, Illustrator

Deborah Stevenson, author

Aside from her considerable artistic talents, Stella is a joy to work with in all regards. She is professional, accommodating, and I trust her 100% to deliver a quality finished product within the agreed upon time and budget. She is a true collaborator with an eye for detail and a strong desire to create a book that not only can the author be proud of, but she can be proud of as well.

I personally love working with her, I really trust her sensitivity and her work. Stella is always open to discussion and new solutions. I know that a project in her hands can only improve and grow. Through images, Stella has the ability to tell the story in a different, captivating and poetic way

Angela Catrani, editor+agent

I met Stella a few years ago: multifaceted artist with great talent, author of short stories, creator of jewels and clothes. She has hands of gold and a patient nature, always willing to work and experiment, with humility and humor.

Stella illustrates a text trying to go beyond the surface and adding her own personal and original contribution.

Each image is a beautiful work of art with small details and a masterful use of light and shadow to finesse the gorgeous life-like illustrations. As a thoughtful collaborator, Stella brings ideas to the table and helps with promotion.
