Rowena Aitken


Early years, primary, stories & fairytales, nature, black & white



My name is Rowena but feel free to call me Ro. I'm an Edinburgh-based coffee-drinking, cat-bothering illustrator who loves drawing in Adobe Photoshop. 

I graduated from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design in 2006 with a BA (Hons) in Animation and Electronic Media. I have been a freelance illustrator for 8 years where my career began in the fantasy/RPG field working with independent publishers. I have followed my passion for creating quirky and fun characters and animals! My latest work is Ruan The Little Red Squirrel.

When not illustrating or cat bothering my time is filled with running, swimming and reading.
