ABOUT THIS ARTIST
April Stewart Klausner, Illustrator, Graphic Designer
I can't remember a time when I wasn't drawing. A life-long New Yorker, I attended the High School of Music & Art and Parsons School of Design. My illustrations use vibrant combinations of dyes and inks, gouache, watercolor, colored pencil and collage and have appeared in print, on the web and on textiles. I mainly specialize in botanical illustration and Judaic art. I also take private commissions such as family trees and invitations.
I have wonderful childhood memories of spending the day with my father, a graphic designer at his studio in lower Manhattan. I loved being there, drawing pictures while he worked at (what seemed at the time) a massive drafting table.
When not covered in ink, I can be found in my kitchen covered in flour or happily on my bicycle.
