Author Notes

Sue Hiepler is a freelance illustrator, born and based in the beautiful town of Bonn in Germany. After graduating in communication design and completing her studies with a qualification in illustration, Sue was an art director for three years at an international PR agency before deciding to open her own studio in the spring of 2017. Under the name " May & Berry", Sue and her business partner Yasmin Reddig produce and sell their stunning artwork here, as well as giving regular workshops on drawing and calligraphy. It is through this studio that Sue can explore and share her passion for hand lettering and illustration.

German-born Yasmin Reddig spent most of her life in South America until 2012 when, in Buenos Aires, Argentina, she discovered and fell in love with typography and calligraphy during her university studies. Hand lettering became her greatest passion, and it was this revelation that led Yasmin to return to her native Germany and start her own business. In Bonn, Germany, their passion for hand-drawn words, in connection with watercolour illustrations, drew her and fellow illustrator Sue Hiepler together to start "May & Berry Studios", and it is here that they both sell their beautiful artwork and host watercolour and illustration workshops.
