STEPH STILWELL is an illustrator + designer based in Brooklyn, NY. She wrote, illustrated, and designer her first picture book in kindergarten for show and tell, and has been making books ever since. She earned her BFA in illustration from MICA, and shortly after, packed her bags and moved to New York to pursue publishing. She’s now a designer for ABRAMS, working mostly on their BYR picture book imprint.
When she isn’t making books, you can find Steph scribbling in her sketchbook or working on a freelance project. She’s created illustrations for greeting cards, scented stickers, notebooks, apparel, and many other products. She particularly loves hand-lettering, patterns, and puns. Steph is always excited to take on new and challenging work, and is currently accepting freelance projects.
