Tessa was born 1978 and lives with her hubby and 2 children in a small town by Bremen, Lower Saxony, Germany. After her diploma in art therapy, she decided to focus on her own creativity, became self-employed, and joined the Illustrators‘ Association of Germany. It's the best decision she had ever made! Her work includes children's illustrations, black & white drawings, character designs and personalized hand lettering.
She has since established a fully digital workflow using Photoshop, Illustrator and her Cintiq graphic tablet. Although Tessa loves working digitally, she never leaves home without a pencil and a little sketchbook. The newest children's book with her illustrations, "Trubel in der Feenschule," will be published in April 2017 with Coppenrath Verlag, a German publisher. She is a coffee addict who loves textures, children's books, the sun and the beach!
