April Hartmann’s illustration style combines hand-painted patterns with clean vector graphics, an eye-catching option for products, packaging, editorial, greeting cards, gifts, children’s books, labels, toys and games. Her technique utilizes mixed media such as painted textures, hand-drawn line work, plus pastel and charcoal patterns.
April works with all subject matter, but especially enjoys flowers and nature, food and beverage, people, fashion and beauty, children, and animals, (mostly cats). She has worked with a variety of clients, including McDonalds, Keebler, Petsmart, Kraft, Sears, and Build-a-Bear Workshop.
When she’s not at the drawing table, she’s usually involved in some other creative task like writing, decorating, or testing recipes to get her family to eat more vegetables.
