My name is Lissy Markmiller. I am freelance Illustrator based in Lower Bavaria, Germany for children’s books, nonfiction, editorial, apps and advertising.
I am passionate about bringing unique and charming characters to life through visual storytelling and engaging young readers at a deep level. Nature, feelings and relationships are topics I regularly gravitate to. My work provides enchanted, dreamy atmospheres, full of emotion in a gentle colour scheme with a splash of bright, vibrant finishing touches.
I use both traditional and digital techniques.
In 2001 I graduated with honours in Communication-Design from the Universitiy Of Applied Sciences Munich. After working in the e-learning industry, and some years in the TV-World of Pro7Sat.1 Media AG, I began my freelance career in 2009. I am a member of the Illustrators Organization, the professional association of German-speaking Illustrators as well as of the Association of illustrators (UK) .
My recent work has been collaboratively working for multiple global corporations and publishing companies, communication agencies and start-ups.
When I am not drawing you’ll propably find me eighter on my yoga mat or paddling along in the rivers and lakes nearby. I am very green fingered and love to get my hands dirty in my garden. When the weather turns cold, I can be found curled up in my winged chair reading, with a nice cup of hot chocolate.
Let's work together!
