Stephanie Fizer Coleman
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, Zuzee, MFT Stamps, Santoro, Galison/Mudpuppy, Up With Paper, The Art Group, Crocodile Creek, and Moxie Interactive.
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.
