The older we get, the more we disappear from society. Our own strength diminishes and we can no longer participate in the fast-paced everyday life of the younger ones, perhaps we become lonely. Extended families and their bond with their elders are the exception. Life is reduced to the four walls of your own home or a room in a nursing home.
Vanessa Gärtner is a successful illustrator who expresses her creativity and artistic vision in a variety of projects and media. One of her favourite projects is designing books and magazines. Experimenting with acrylics, watercolours, coloured pencils, fineliners, paper cuts, overlays, collages and gluing techniques, she carefully selects the one that best suits the story or project.
Working closely with authors, Vanessa ensures that each illustration exudes the desired mood and atmosphere. She pays great attention to detail and quality to convey the meaning and depth of the written word. Her illustrations can stand on their own alongside the text and enrich the reading experience.
