Hi! Welcome to my page.
I’m Caroline Christen. An artist, self-taught illustrator, handletterer and designer.
I was born and grew up in Bern, Switzerland, but have spent the last ten years living and working mostly in the Middle East and Africa as a delegate for the Red Cross. During this time abroad, I re-discovered my creativity and combined it with my obsession for food, hence why much of my work is focused on that topic.
I learnt my skills mostly through a variety of online courses and by attending short courses at Central Saint Martins in London.
So, what do I do exactly? I have illustrated an array of recipes, have created illustrated guides and cookbooks for friends and family and my art has made it into various weddings.
What I dream of? Well, illustrating a proper cookbook for one. And of more wedding menus and illustrating food packaging and recipes in magazines. If you get as excited as I do over some watercolour splashes on your grandmother’s birthday cake recipe or your favourite jam or would like to have me make your big day that tad more gorgeous, get in touch! I’d love to work with you.
I’d love to connect and work with you. Fill that form or shoot me an email – I’d love to hear from you! I am also happy to do commissions in other languages than English, incl. French, German, Spanish and Arabic.
Thanks for stopping by!
