The Illustrator

Susanne Szesny was born in 1965. She studied visual communication in Münster and received a diploma in design. After her studies, she worked freelance as an illustrator of games books, board books and picture books. In her opinion, a book should transport an inner value (a message, a teaching) and be a source of inspiration for children and adults equally. With her pictures she tries to build a bridge between the emotional worlds of children and adults.
