Hi!



I'm Fides, a German illustrator with a focus on Flora, Fauna & Food Illustration. 
I am currently based in Hamburg, Germany.

After studying illustration in the Netherlands, Germany and Switzerland, I graduated in 2015 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in scientific visualization from Zurich University of the Arts in Switzerland.
I completed my master’s degree in illustration at Hamburg University of Applied Sciences in 2020.

I am a member of Illustratoren Organisation e.V.  and represented by Rauchwetter.

As an artist, my main interest has always been analogue techniques, especially watercolour and coloured pencil. Close observation and realistic visualizations are my strengths.

Illustrating complex themes while not losing sight of the essential is what I try to achieve, varying my illustration style from abstract to naive to realistic, depending on the target group.
