About

Isabelle Stell was born in Lille. She has degrees from the School of Architecture of Versailles and from the National School of Decorative Arts in Paris (ENSAD).

As an architect and industrial designer, Isabelle has lived in Hamburg, New York, and Paris. Over a twenty year period she has gained deep experience in the international luxury retail field, while constantly remaining connected to the world of contemporary art in each of these inspiring cities.

In addition, Isabelle draws offbeat moments of daily life, which are published on her blog 'those little things'*. These drawings reflect her taste for ‘sketching on the spot’.

Her drawings were exhibited in 2016 at the Françoise Sagan media center in Paris and published in the book 'Ranger' for the editions Marie-Claire Massin in 2017.

Currently, Isabelle is concentrating on brand illustration.

Influenced by her strong retail merchandising experience for high end retail clients such as Louis Vuitton, Yves Saint Laurent, Loewe, Donna Karan, Shiseido, Judith Leiber--Isabelle designs for brands whose authentic, life-long "know-how" somehow retains the connection between tradition and modernity. 

She continues to make personal drawings printed in limited edition.

 

* 'Those little things’ is a collection of color sketched micro-stories, a focus on the daily life smallest bits.
