Overview

Hi, I'm Henriette, a freelance artist from Germany and I love good stories, intriguing characters and unexpected twists. Combining my painting skills with your storytelling I create alluring covers and illustrations. I come from a background in project management, freelance work for game development and fine art tieing together reliability, ingenuity and a realistic painting approach.

I offer:
- Cover Art
- Cover Design
- Interior Illustration
- Cartography

My clients value my ability to bring their visions to a point. For covers, I achieve this by focusing on the atmosphere of the story, thinking of the target audience and adding just enough information to spark the imagination and curiosity of the viewer. I am very transparent about my process and along the way I provide you several choices and tips on creating a best selling cover.

You'll find me here, with a cat on my lap awaiting the next painting adventures.

Henriette is absolutely great to work with. She's realistic about her timeline and takes her own deadlines seriously, which spoke to her professionalism. Not only that, she's a wonderful artists with a unique style that I think is adaptable and flexible for any fiction writer's cover.
