Overview

Reviews (5)
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 imagination 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.

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.
