Judy Kaufmann spent her childhood in Santiago de Chile. In 2004 she moved to Barcelon to study illustration. The high quality of life and cultural riches brought her to Spain. – “The best thing ist hat I can go everywhere on my bike!“ – Since her graduation Judy has been working as a freelance designer and illustrator. In addition she teaches creative advertising at her local university.

Two things are essential for Judy Kaufmann’s illustrative work: The idea for the image and the time she has to create it. – „I’m inspired by everything that I do not yet understand, what I do not yet know and what I have not yet become.“

Lead and colour pencils are Judy’s favourite analogue tools, but she mostly creates her illustrations digitally. Her work is bubbly and colourful. Some elements in her drawings repeat themselves: „I have an identical twin, so for me all shapes have to be multiplied to show their true beauty.”

Her love for duplicating things shows in Judy Kaufmann’s pattern projects: For the Spanish „Joy Heart“ the Chilean designed winter patterns for umbrellas – joyful, colourful print designs that make everyone smile even if it rains! She also created wrapping paper with figures holding hands and tote bags with animal illustrations.

A special personal project are Judy’s popular lapel pins of characters like Batman and Robin, David Bowie or singer Prince. Her latest pin creations are especially cute: tiny, delicate monsters in bright colours. In future the designer would like to put more time into this affair of the heart and create more pin collections – and to illustrate her own children’s book!
