Leni Kauffman is an illustrator of American and Japanese heritage currently living and working in London.

She studied BA Graphic Design/Illustration at Central Saint Martins and has since worked in a number of fields including editorial illustration, animation, pattern design and calligraphy.

Her delicate colourful approach to illustration is influenced by her childhood growing up in Tokyo, cooking, gardening, and travelling whenever she can.

In 2014 Leni started an ongoing online project with Oliver O’Keefe and Mayumi Mori called 52 Words A Year.

She also runs Other Wardrobe, a weekly illustrated fashion blog.

Leni works in Pencil, Watercolour and Ink as well as digitally.
