Liz DiFiore


Liz DiFiore, Freelance Illustrator

I’m a freelance illustrator specializing in children’s picture book illustration, though I also do middle grade illustration, video and board games, and other commissions. My favorite stories to work on are personal and emotionally impacting, displaying kids and/or adults dealing with big emotions (like anxiety or empathy) and interpersonal relationships (like kids and their parents, family members, or friends).

I am also an active streamer on Twitch with a lovely, growing community of fellow creatives. I hope the live creation of my art is as delighting as the finished product. Please see my Twitch page at lizziebydesign for my current stream schedule.

When I’m not life drawing in some local coffee shop I love looking for new places to adventure with friends. I’m still new to New England (originally hailing from Western New York) and have enjoyed getting to know the area!

I am a member of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators and the Regional Representative for the New England Chapter of the Graphic Artists Guild.
