Anne Leppänen

Hey! I am Anne Leppänen. I currently work as an illustrator and visual artist, but previously I have worked for a long period in the field of communication research. That's why I always aim to create visual implementations with consideration to the target group. I am happy to discuss and come up with ideas with the customer. I also want to make sure that my style fits as best as possible for his or her needs.
I am inspired by the world of children, social relationships, moods and their expression in body language. Both my paintings and illustrations have a childlike, colorful, round and at least slightly humorous look.
As of today, I devote plenty of my time making illustrations. Even small jobs are interesting. I also use English and French as needed.

My illustrations are intended for children and children-minded people, and to bring about a warm atmosphere to the story. My style is clear, the characters and expressions are quite realistic. At the same time, they are quite traditional in style. I use digital tools such as Procreate and Photoshop, but I also use watercolor surfaces and draw with pencil.
