Now: Co-founder of Papio Press
“Truro offers a wide variety of Art & Design courses, which makes it very unique from a lot of other colleges and sixth forms, giving students like me an opportunity to specialise, and focus their interests earlier.”
After college, Zanna studied an Art & Design foundation degree at Falmouth University, before starting her BA (Hons) in Illustration at The University of Gloucestershire.
“I am now the co-owner (and co-founder) of my own Illustration Press (Papio Press) with my partner Harry Marshall, who I met at University. We’re an online company based currently on Etsy and Not on the High Street. We use our illustrations to make everyday products beautiful and unique, and at the moment we sell iPhone cases, Pocket mirrors, tote bags, notebooks and prints. Our business is still very new, but we’ve been overwhelmed with the response we’ve received and the rate at which is has grown.”
“I’m still in my third year of University and I’m hoping to graduate this year with a first, and then continue to grow and develop Papio Press with Harry. However I also hope to work as a children’s book illustrator and would love to one day have my own children’s book published.”
