Biography of Lisa Brandenburg, illustrator of the children's picture books "That’s For Babies" and "If You Want To Fall Asleep" published by Clavis Publishing, New York.
My name is Lisa Brandenburg (Dordrecht, 1978). I am an illustrator, living and working in Amstelveen in the Netherlands. I am married and the proud mother of a son and a daughter.
I received my education at the Willem de Kooning Academy in Rotterdam. I have wide experience with various disciplines and am competent with many different techniques and styles.
My clients and target groups are very varied. I have wide artistic interests, am curious about what happens around us in society, and I enjoy challenge and change: it keeps me and my work sharp and focused.
Since 2012 I’ve been illustrating Guy Daniëls’ stories about the self-willed Little Witch Ella and her friends. The books have been translated into various languages.
My work is characterized by specific use of color and composition, humor and a touch of melancholy.
