Hello, nice to have you here!

I’m Stephanie and I have been working as a freelance illustrator in Chemnitz, Germany since 2013. My repertoire includes editorial and children‘s book illustrations, visuals for campaigns and graphic recording. I offer professional collaborations and results. Among my clients are the City of Chemnitz, children’s book publishers, such as Tyrolia, as well as cultural and political institutions, just like non-profit organizations.

All my life I love to draw and fill my sketchbooks with plants and animals and friendly people on the train.

On this website you’ll find an overview of my work. Ink or digital drawings are among my favorites for sure. But why not experiment with various techniques as well? Catch some sneak peeks in my lab!
