Fabi Santiago

People told Fabi her drawings were beautiful – and one day she had to listen to them. She dropped out of Law school, studied fine art and design, went travelling, found new passions and re-found old ones and finally came across the MA in Children’s Book Illustration at the Cambridge School of Art, from where she graduated in 2014.

Her first picture book, Tiger in a Tutu, was published by Orchard, and shortlisted for the Waterstones Children’s Book Prize 2017.  Paws Off My Book was published in 2017 by Scholastic. Fabi is working on further titles for both Orchard and Scholastic.
