Amanda Jonsson

Hi, I’m Amanda Jonsson (born in Luleå 1994, currently living in Stockholm) a Swedish illustrator and author. Currently I’m doing my BFA at Konstfack University of Arts, Crafts and Design.

I love working in different fields such as wood carving, quilting, painting, animation and collage making.

I’m available for freelance work within illustration, graphic design and writing as well as teaching/tutoring about everything when it comes to picture book-making.
