Birgit Schössow

Hamburg, Germany

Birgit Schössow’s beautiful and poetic artworks reflect her love for life as well as her warmth. She says herself that there is no boundary between life and work for an artist, which explains why she has set up her studio at the heart of her home. That’s where she works, inspired by many sources ranging from Rembrandt to Sempé, the Northern German sea, or the rough texture of an old wall. Her client list is as varied as the techniques she uses and includes newspapers and magazines (The New Yorker, Die Zeit…) as well as children’s books. Birgit is a Society of Illustrators of New York and American Illustration award-winner.
