Stina Wirsén

Stina Wirsén was born in 1968. She is known for her illustrations in the newspapers and has received several awards. With her illustrations she moves between vastly different subjects; everything from fashion to psychology. She is also famous as illustrator of children’s books, working a lot with her mother Carin. She points out that she almost never works with a book that is practically done but exchanges ideas with the author as they move along. Stina has also made her own picture books, making both the text and illustrations.
