Bianca Tschaikner is an Austrian-born illustrator and printmaker. I loved Bianca’s artwork because of her free expressionism and bold lines with a romance seems to have been derived from another century. Bianca Tschaikner except of illustrating cookbooks, creating artist books and doing woodcuts she loves to illustrate maps that are full of life! Bianca explores the world with her sketchbook on hand…
She studied Media Design at the University of Applied Sciences Vorarlberg and used her exchange semester in Santiago de Chile for extensive travels around the South American continent, which finally inspired her first illustrated cookbook.
After having finished her studies, she went to live in Tangier, Morocco, travelled through India, Central and South East Asia and finally moved to Florence to study printmaking at Il Bisonte. She is currently living in Betanzos, Northern Spain, where she is studying printmaking at Fundación CIEC.
