Tanja Cappell 

Frau Portrait

"I am Tanja Cappell  and I live for pen and paper. In a world of complete digitalization, I fight for the preservation of the most important tool: our own hand. Whether to communicate our ideas in the form of scribbles or to create lively letters for an invitation: the hand creates pen and paper products that touch and convince.

My great passion is visual thinking and recording. I have been working in late 2013 with the so-called visual language and give it various workshops, including the topic sketchnotes . Since the end of 2014 I deal also with the issue of Hand Lettering illustrating for me art and relaxation at the same time."
