Julia Schlosser was born near Würzburg in 1991 and grew up there. She has been drawing since she could hold a pencil. She discovered a passion for illustration during her Master’s in visual arts in Marburg where she produced her first graphic tales in the form of illustrated stories, picture books and comics. That was also when she began work on her debut book, The Never-ending Forest. Textile crafts are her other great love, and she makes animal figures and dolls from fabrics and wool.
