Gila von Meissner

Gila is pronounced with a G like Goofy, and a longer ee sound. G-ee-lah. But honestly, I react to almost any variation. 🙂 Jill, Gilla, Gila-Monster…

My pronouns are she/her.

I am an author-illustrator and graphic designer from the North of Germany. A lake, a tiny house, two dogs, and a cat – happiness. My days are filled with drawing cute things on the couch, messing around in the garden, and walking the countryside and adjacent zoo.

I have lived in the States and the Netherlands, have a deep-rooted love for Israel, and speak German, Dutch, and English fluently.

I pay my bills with logo design, branding and packaging, as well as children’s books and illustrated merchandise.
