Stephanie lives with her two tomcats in Bielefeld, Germany. She began her career as a graphic designer, but after a few years in the industry Stephanie decided it was time to follow her dreams and become a full-time illustrator.
“Since I started to learn how to draw in 2009 and to paint digitally in 2010, I’m constantly improving my skills,” she says. “I’m mainly self-taught, with some help of my friends, the internet and several workshops.”
Right now Stephanie mostly works on RPGs and board games, but would love to paint book covers in the future.
Doomed “I painted this for the ArtOrder AIR challenge – the topic was water pollution. The destruction of the ocean is something that concerns me. It was tough looking up references for this piece… all those dead animals! This is a very personal image and one of my favourites. I like her expression.”
Star Wars Battle “An illustration for the RPG magazine Mephisto. I used model spaceships for reference. I love to paint explosions, exhausts and laser beams. It was a challenge to paint something that everybody knows and give it something of your own.”
Explos ion “Work for my personal Project VARGHAS. I like the extreme angle in this shot and the action. I got inspired by a John Scalzi novel from the Old Man’s War series, and my favourite video game Killzone.” 4 Crash “Another illustration for Mephisto. I wanted to paint a daylight scene for a change. This piece went through many iterations as I worked on developing the storytelling aspect.” 1
