Stina Wirsén was born in 1968. She is known for her illustrations in the newspapers and has received several awards. With her illustrations she moves between vastly different subjects; everything from fashion to psychology. She is also famous as illustrator of children’s books, working a lot with her mother Carin. She points out that she almost never works with a book that is practically done but exchanges ideas with the author as they move along. She has also made her own picture books, making both the text and illustrations.
