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 Duden Verlag, Herder/Kerle Verlag, Planet! 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!
