Stephanie Hofmann was born and raised in Germany and did a degree in graphic design in Hamburg. She lives in London with her partner and two cats. She has a love of the surreal and and gothic and is inspired by most things from books via music to all the small funny and curious encounters of the every day.  Her illustrations have appeared as animations, on book covers, in children books, on textiles, greeting cards, cups, lampshades and in many magazines. When she is not drawing you can probably find her running, exploring London on her bicycle, at a gig, or swimming in the ponds on Hampstead Heath!
