Gwen Wiess is a freelance illustrator currently living and working in Southern New Jersey.
Upon graduating from Tyler School of Art at Temple University, Gwen spent some time living and working in her hometown of Philadelphia before moving to the Czech Republic for 3 years to teach English at a preschool in Prague. In 2020, Gwen moved back to the States and now resides just a stones throw from the shore.
Her creative work celebrates the magic hidden in the everyday by experimenting with form, line, shape and color. Often she explores her own sense of self and internal universe through her imagery - resulting in emotional uses of color and form. She explores these ideas using both traditional and digital media ; primarily the app Procreate, gouache, and colored pencil.
When she’s not managing her humble online shop full of small prints, stickers, and pet portraits, she can be found documenting her artistic journey on youtube, knitting, or taking her rescue dog, Rocco, to the beach.
