Melanie loves everything botanical, which is a regular feature in her illustrations. In her highly detailed drawings she captures the essence of every scene, highlighting all important details. She has a playful approach to angles and shading, which creates her distinctive style, as well as the fine texture and colors by using coloring pencils. All elements in her drawings are digitalised separately to allow flexibilty in the final composition. Melanie has studied illustration at the HAW in Hamburg, where she still lives and creates.
