Elanie Bieldt

"I have always seen the world and people around me in funny pictures. Being a children's book illustrator allows me to channel that towards something meaningful."

Elanie Bieldt is a South African children's book illustrator and artist with a great love for creating humorous, dynamic, expressive characters.

She highly values inclusivity, and catering for children of all backgrounds through characters that are relatable, funny, uplifting, and endearing. 

The characters in her illustrations are almost aways a bit exaggerated; a bit squishy, a bit lanky, a bit disheveled, and unapologetically so.

Although working mostly digitally, Elanie has an extensive background in traditional mediums such as acrylic, watercolours, ink, and graphite. This aids her in incorporating more organic inspired textures and colour schemes.

Her work is quite diverse, ranging from traditional art mediums such as watercolour, acrylic and graphite, as well as digital art, vector art and, as of recently, dabbling in 2D animation.

Elanie has been in the children's book illustration industry since 2014, and has done work for numerous large clients, such as Penguin Random House South Africa, as well as self-publishing and first-time authors.
