With me, you get two illustrators in one. I am able to take my imagination and create illustrations that live in a colourful world with interesting human and animal characters as well as use my degree in Scientific Illustration to create realistic, accurate depictions.

One look at my portfolio of internationally published work, you’ll see I can go from fictional characters to realistic non-fictional, and anywhere in between. You might think it was created by a team, instead of one person. These projects range from illustrating children’s and educational books, as well as illustrations for advertising and editorial projects.

As a trained, freelance illustrator, I am fortunate to have been hired to create books that amaze and connect on an emotional level with children and adults. My love for research, story creation, and world building shows in both my fiction, and non-fiction, books, and has proven to create an emotional response from the readers.

My goal with each project is to bring the clients’ vision to life, not force my own ideas. I like working in cooperation with teams, using open and constructive collaboration, to make this goal a reality.

I am based in Zurich, Switzerland, but my clients are based throughout Europe and English speaking countries across the globe, so location is not a limitation for me.
