My name is Sandra Neuditschko and I am a freelance illustrator. I live and work in Vienna, but my heart still belongs to the place I grew up in, the so-called Forest Quarter. For most people, the Forest Quarter is remote rural area in Lower Austria, but for me it is a mystical place where two days can feel like a week and you meet people you would never meet anywhere else.
My love for illustration began early, and as a child I would spend many a happy hour colouring and drawing. If you had asked me what I wanted to be as an adult, I would have told you I wanted to be an artist, but by the end of secondary school, career services had left their mark on me and convinced me to embark on a more realistic career. Thus, I got a MA in Ancient History, however I found it impossible to find a job in the field after graduation. Fortunately, I had started to draw again while writing my MA thesis and just after graduation I was asked to illustrate my first children’s book. This was the start of my career as a freelance illustrator. These days, watercolor is the medium I'm specialized and most interested in, but I am also familiar with colored pencil, ink and digital media like Adobe Photoshop, InDesign or Illustrator. I love to use vibrant and vivid colors to show the world how I want it to be: extraordinary and unique.
Although most of my time is taken up with work, I make time to cook every day and if you look at my portfolio, you will see my fascination with different kinds of foods reflected there. Also, I would love to go and visit Japan, see the Northern Lights and learn sign language. Last but not least, I need time to enjoy my collection of vintage tin boxes and jars, which for reasons unknown make me very happy.
