About (english)

Are you looking for professional, colorful illustrations that are also slighly cheeky?

That’s what I do – that is what I’m good at!

I create professional, beautiful art, such as illustrations for childrens books, educational books, invitations and posters. Among my clients are publishers and advertising agencies (e.g. Coppenrath Verlag, Fischer Verlag, Barbour Books USA ) and local companies.

My work includes illustrated spreads & backgrounds, black & white drawings, character designs and personalized hand lettering.

My designs can be licensed for prints, T-Shirts and much more…

I established a fully digital workflow using Photoshop and Cintiq graphic tablet.

Who I am

I am Tessa, born 1978 and live with my hubby and 2 children in a small town nearby Bremen, Lower Saxony, Germany. After my diploma in art therapy,  I decided to focus on my own creativity, became self-employed and  joined the Illustrators‘ Association of Germany. The best decision I’ve ever done!

What else? Oh yes, I love coffee, textures, childrens books, the sun and the beach!
