Christiane Engel is many things: illustrator, children’s book writer, handlettering artist, pattern designer, “fan of dogs and deserts”. Based in London, she takes inspiration from nature, the Wild West, geography, Outsider Art, calendars, maps, and old neon signs, many of which influences appear in the pictured work.
