Katyuli is an artist, published illustrator and designer.
Of Russian and French heritage on her mother’s side, and English on her father’s, Katyuli was educated at home and spent a lot of time as a child on the Greek island of Hydra, where the family still divide their time. She went to Marlborough College, Wiltshire, and then Clare College, Cambridge, where she read Russian and Modern Greek (2004-8). From 2014-2016, she completed an MA in Children’s Book Illustration at the Cambridge School of Art.
Katyuli’s illustrations for Virginia Woolf’s novel Flush, 1933, were short-listed for both the V&A Illustration Awards 2016 as well as the World Illustration Awards 2016.
These came out in an edition (Prosymne Press, London, 2018) featuring a Preface by John Sutherland, Emeritus Professor of English at UCL and is available to buy in all major bookshops in the U.K.
A Portuguese edition (published by Autêntica Editora, Brazil, and translated by Tomaz Tadeu), featuring the illustrations was also published in October 2016 and is available to buy Here.
In May 2017, Katyuli produced new book cover designs and internal illustrations for The Folio Society’s editions of Patrick Leigh Fermor’s Mani (1958) and Roumeli (1966). They are available to buy Here
