Ana Chabrand williams
LEAD DESIGNER & PROJECT MANAGER
Ana Chabrand is a freelance artist, graphic designer and writer located in Vancouver, BC Canada. She is the founder of this freelancing creative studio.
Ana has always loved spending hours in bookstores, picking out books from the shelves that stood out and getting mesmerized by their outstanding covers. Sometimes- just buying books because of their beautiful book covers. For her, it is truly a dream come true to design them professionally and help self-publish authors put them up on those same shelves.
On her free time, she enjoys binge-watching the latest TV show, listening to movie soundtracks, reading or window-shopping for more shoes.

She works in her home studio based in Texas, exploring between traditional and stylistic mediums in her illustrations.

Leila enjoys collaborating with Ana Chabrand Design House by illustrating beautiful and unique images to effectively communicate the client’s vision.
When she is not drawing, Leila enjoys spending time with her daughter Sienna, who has been a big part of her journey as an artist. Watching movies, playing piano and singing off key are some of her other hobbies.
