Bright colored sketches and ballpoint pen doodles,
A circle in purple and Vietnamese noodles,
The sweet melody when my Instagram bings ...
These are a few of my favorite things.

Hello, I am Gisela Goppel. I am an illustrator living in Regensburg, Germany. I studied textile design at the University of Arts in Berlin and illustration in Barcelona. I have two children and when I am not drawing I love being outside with my family exploring wild nature.

In my illustrations, I look to create an independent contribution that speaks for itself. In order to visualize a feeling, to create an atmosphere or to render an identity I attempt to find the right balance between abstract and narrative elements.
