Steph Stilwell is a pun-loving, New York Times bestselling illustrator and designer based in Brooklyn, NY. She is currently illustrating and designing for Hello!Lucky by day and can often be found working on freelance by night on books like Essentially Charli.
Prior to Hello!Lucky, Steph received her BFA in illustration from MICA and then spent several years in publishing as a children's book designer, working on a variety of formats including board books, picture books, chapter books, and graphic novels. Steph will forever be a children's book enthusiast and is now using her publishing know-how to illustrate her own children's books.
When she isn't working on freelance, you will likely find her scribbling in her sketchbook, binge-watching a cooking show, or hanging out with her dog, Jake.
