I'm Helene Wotruba, an illustrator and designer with a love of shape, texture and colour. My work is fun, joyful, and a little bit wacky and my ultimate aim is to make people smile.
My process is very tactile, and I love using a range of different processes, from print to 3D. My current work combines detailed observational pencil drawings with hand-dyed, cut-paper collages where I enjoy taking things out of their original context and turning them into something playful and abstract.
I create narrative work such as picture books and book covers, along with character design, editorial, and murals.
