About me

My name is Barbara Baumann. I am working as an illustrator and I enjoy a lot to give drawing classes and to exchange with other art enthusiasts about drawing topics, tip, techniques & experiences.

5 facts about me

I am trying to break down my description into 5 rough facts. If you still have a question about me & my work, feel free to write me!


Holding the prints in my hand is a very special moment.

My illustrations are published in serveral books, amongst other by Brandstätter Verlag, Servus Verlag, MIDAS Verlag, Provinicial Government of Lower Austria and Seitenblicke or they underlined the branding of companies through posters, lookbooks & website illustration.


I love studying.

My studies at the University of Applied Science in Salzburg gave me precious insights into the world of Design & Marketing. During my work as a Database Marketing Manager, I studied Sociology & Psychologie in French.  

This knowledge helps me a lot in the creation of my illustration.


Award-winning is so motivating.

I was chosen as one of the "200 best illustrators worldwide 18/19" by Lürzer Archive.


I enjoy talking about art & drawing.

That's why I have started in 2015 to give drawing classes online and also offline. I enjoy interaction with people, who are enthusiastic about drawing and who love to learn techniques & tips.


I love coffee & ice-cream.

When I am fully into illustrating, I forget about everything. Ice-cream & coffee are always near me to hold my energy level.

"I find this presentation to be uncomplicated, clearly explained and full of helpful techniques. Barbara Thank you for sharing. Greatly appreciated! I'll be watching this many times to cement ;-) Am a happy camper now... "I got it, I got it, I GOT IT ! Now I just have to practice, practice and practice ;-)”
