Magical Image Makers

"The most important things can't be expressed by words", Cornelia once said. We'd like to "introduce" you to some inspiring illustrators from around the world.

There is much which cannot be put into words, BUT into drawings, paintings, animation, or collage. They can turn our thoughts and feelings into images. They often illustrate what is hard to verbalize. That is great art and it enriches every story.

Before Cornelia became an author, she was — and has never stopped being — an illustrator. That is why we have developed a new feature for her website, in which we will introduce illustrators, who inspire us and whose work touches us.
