I am Cecilia -Ceci (like chickpeas!)- Granata. I am a professional illustrator and painter specializing in a fun, edgy and playful style that especially appeals to children and young adults.
My artwork has been printed on book covers, magazines, skateboard decks and music merchandise. My fine art paintings have been shown internationally in galleries and museums. You can find a complete list of my shows in the resume at the bottom of this page.
I wrote and illustrated a vegan cookbook "Mama Tried: Traditional Italian Cooking for the Screwed, Crude, Vegan, and Tattooed", published by Microcosm Publishing: https://microcosmpublishing.com/catalog/books/3811/
My favorite tools are acrylic paint, graphite pencils and digital media. I love to draw all things cute and all things spooky.
I am a School of Visual Arts (NY) and Academy of Arts (SF) graduate.
My art collections are available for licensing and I am currently available for commissions, I'd love to collaborate on your new project!
I am Italian, currently living in Berkeley, CA with my handsome husband. When I am not lost in a colorful wonderland that lives between sheets of paper and boards of wood, I love to travel, to cook colorful veggies, to read and watch movies, to hike and scuba dive but definitely not to fly.
I practice a very traditional form of Yoga for which I’m a certified teacher.
