Karen Vermeulen Illustration

Karen Vermeulen, a book cover designer, illustrator, teacher, and writer living and working in Cape Town, South Africa with a love for humour, stories, patterns, colour, and all things creativity-related.

Karen Vermeulen has been drawing since she could hold a crayon, but professionally speaking, has 17 years of experience working as a creative. With a background in advertising, Karen worked as an art director, all the while drawing as a side hustle. These days, Karen has swopped the crayon for an Apple pencil, and now is a full-time creative hustler/entrepreneur/illustrator/teacher, and designer!

Apart from knowing how to wield a pencil, Karen is also adept at meeting deadlines, answering briefs, and generally being a fun person to work with.
