Hi! Nice to meet you! My name is Irene Swiridow, I‘m the illustrator behind Papperlapappe Illustration. I grew up in a small town in southern Germany. Even as a child I was interested in plants, flowers and animals. After living in Hamburg for some years, I now live surrounded by fields and meadows, my chickens and two dogs. Since completing my Master degree in art education I have been working with children, which inspires my illustrations and really makes me laugh a lot. All of this and many more everyday experiences are expressed in my work. I hope you enjoy it!
