I’m an illustrator based in Kassel (Germany), specializing in the natural world. I’ve studied communications design and illustration at the HAW Hamburg.

I’ve been passionate about the natural world all my life, and I’m dedicated to connect art and nature in my work. I love to keep exploring in detail how nature works in my sketchbook and in detailed illustrations, and I’m fascinated by the multitude of shapes and colors and structures of the natural world. With my work I want to increase awareness for the natural world we live in and its fascinating fauna and flora.

I work both in traditional techniques (watercolor, gouache, ink) and digitally with a drawing tablet, depending on the project in a detailed naturalistic or more stylized approach. My illustrations have appeared in magazines, books, on book covers, greeting cards, and more.

If you’re interested in working with me, I’d love to hear about your project. You can contact me at: mail@juliabausenhardt.com

Showing people how they can discover and connect to nature through making art is an important part of what I do. I teach people how they can experience nature and learn drawing through starting a nature journal. Drawing and painting are excellent ways to learn more about nature. I want to help people deepen their connection to nature, and show them how exploring and sketching in the field can strengthen their observation, curiosity and creativity, and love for nature.

I’m offering online classes (through Skillshare) and live workshops on the topic around Germany. Contact me if you want to organize a workshop with me.
