Hello, my name is Andrea Ringli and I’m a freelance illustrator. I live in Zurich, Switzerland, where I grew up. I studied graphic design at the Lucerne School of Art and Design, and in 2014 I illustrated my first picture book, I wish I’d been born a Unicorn, for Maverick Arts Publishers. 

My illustrations are inspired by nature, my cat, and everyday life. I mainly work digitally, but I still love using pens, brushes and pencils. Besides drawing, I like gardening, pottery, entomology and riding my bicycle.


I am a happy member of Autillus, the Swiss Society of children’s book authors and illustrators: autillus.ch

Please feel free to contact me for commissions, or just to say hello: andrea{at}andrearingli.ch
