and welcome to my site!

My name is Marie Basten. I am a freelance illustrator-artist based in Berlin. Born and raised in the Bavarian
countryside, I graduated from the art academy in Kassel with distinction in 2013.
For the last few years I've worked for different agencies and clients, designing numerous characters for
animated films and marketing in general.
I've illustrated all kinds of texts - kids' books and poetry as well as publications on economical issues and
teaching material. Deep at heart, I consider myself simply a drawer: so that's what I love doing!
With my free work I am being represented by the "Gallery Rasch" in Kassel since 2012.


I produce my digital work on a Wacom Cintiq tablet, handling all common programs: Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, AfterEffects, Premiere, Logic, FinalCut and SketchBook.
At art school, I studied etching, linocut and lithographie. However, for me everything still starts with the good old pencil!
