Aga Grandowicz is a highly prolific, proactive, entrepreneurial, and multi-award-winning art director, graphic designer, illustrator and artist. She studied graphic design, fine arts, and traditional photography in ASP Gdansk (Academy of Fine Arts Gdansk, Poland), and shortly after completing her master’s degree in 2003, with the highest honours, she set up her graphic design & illustration practice and started working for a large variety of Polish businesses. In 2006, in search of adventure, Aga moved to Ireland, where she still lives and works from her home in South Dublin. Her first book published in Ireland – created together with Rob Maguire – Dr Hibernica Finch’s Compelling Compendium of Irish Animals – was shortlisted for the Irish Book Awards 2018, Literacy Ireland Children’s Book Award 2019, and won Aga the Honour Award for Illustration in CBI’s Book of the Year Award 2019. Since this book’s publication, Aga has worked on many wildlife-related projects, contributing to them with her design and illustration skills. This eventually led to the establishment of Natural World Publishing with the goal of producing beautiful, nature-inspired books for all ages. Wild Wonders, an anthology of short nature stories for children is her latest book project that involved 22 contributors – much-loved writers and highly-skilled illustrators.
