Hello, I'm Stephanie Fizer Coleman.
I’m an illustrator, designer and generally curious girl living in lovely but misunderstood West Virgina. I was lucky to grow up in a rural area, with a babbling brook and lush forest just a few feet from my back door; I find that the love of nature I developed as a child still influences my work today.
After seriously studying ballet and getting my BA in History, I found my true passion in illustrating and have been working as a freelance illustrator since 2008.
I work in Photoshop with a splash of Illustrator thrown in from time to time and have developed a style of working that blends both digital and traditional elements. I enjoy playing around with patterns, textures and brilliant colors in my work.
My client list includes Chronicle Books, Mudpuppy, Up With Paper, Caterpillar Books, Ladybird Books, American Greetings, Papyrus, Noel Tatt, and Highlights.
Outside of my illustration career and running my Etsy shop, I enjoy creating my own stories and am currently working on a self-published picture book. In my "spare" time, I'm collaborating with my husband as a colorist for a comic book that he's writing and penciling.
If you're interested in working with me, I'd love to hear a bit about your project. You can reach me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Stay up-to-date on new work, follow along on Instagram where I frequently post sketches, works in progress and finished illustrations/projects.
