Amelia Souva is a freelance portrait illustrator based out of her native city, San Francisco, California. After graduating from the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising with a degree in fashion design, she realized that her calling lied in illustration itself. She specializes in realistic human portraiture with whimsical components, gathering inspiration from the flora and fauna of the natural world and the characteristics it shares with the human spirit. Her work is infused with playful, eye-catching pastels, yet the narratives of her subjects remain somewhat mysterious- with underlying tones of enchantment and nostalgia.
Amelia has done illustration for company logos, film storyboards, product development, clothing, skateboard merchandise, and personal portrait commissions. Clients have included companies such as Freebord, Chubbies Shorts, and Barcelona based clothing company Costalamel.
