About Lené Ehlers : Lené Ehlers is a creative, living in Stellenbosch, South Africa. She completed her BA Graphic Design in 2015 at CTI and then went on to complete a postgraduate degree, Honors in Visual Arts (Illustration), at Stellenbosch University in 2017. She creates conceptual illustrations that often become a book. Narrative plays a pivotal part in her art making. Topics such as processing emotions internally versus externally, postmodernist themes, and a humorous take on ordinary day jobs are some of the topics she has explored in illustrated books. Writing also comes very naturally to her and she sees it as a tool to enhance her illustrations. Her books and illustrations are tongue- in- cheek and witty.

Communication is at the core of good design, expression is at the core of good art. Illustration is where the two meet.
