About Me

 
My name is Ilanit Ktorza, I am a freelance artist and graphic designer who specializes in prints, packaging design, logos/branding. I was born in Paris and my early childhood was an eclectic painting turned around design, art, fashion and runways. I was always passionate by museums, theatre, and stop motion. I decided in my young adult life to attend every school that would stanch my thirst, and I did. I attended my first university in Paris, St-Denis University, where I majored in art and 3D graphic design. I also attended several workshops in stop motion and interned at studios between Paris and Los Angeles. I have experience in photography, event design and organization such as birthdays, baby showers, parties ... Otherwise I studied drama theatre and attended many workshops at the international acting school in Paris.
