Gabriella Barouch submitted a stand-out illustration portfolio including many delicate drawings inspired by her native Jerusalem.

Gabriella Barouch is an Israeli illustrator and graduate of the Bezalel Academy of Art and Design. Her YCN Professional Award will sit on the shelf next to a Grand Prix award from the international Hiii Illustration competition. Her delicate drawings have to date been published in Digital Arts, Elephant and TimeOut Israel magazines.

Pictured below are extracts from a travel diary, inspired by her native Jerusalem.

Gabriella is one of 25 international creatives, victorious as part of the inaugural YCN Professional Awards. Her awarded work will shortly be presented in a special publication to commemorate this year's winners, and added to our coming online Showcase section.
