Isabelle Stell is an illustrator 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, she lived in Hamburg, New York, Paris and gained an experience of 15 years in the international luxury retail field.

In her spare time, self-taught in illustration, she draws poetic and offbeat daily life that she publishes on her blog "those little things*, affirming her taste for simple and effective ‘sketching on the spot’.

Her drawings have been 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.

In 2019, she decided to focus full time on illustration.

Influenced by her strong retail merchandising experience for high end retail clients (Louis Vuitton, Yves Saint Laurent, Loewe, Donna Karan, Shiseido, Judith Leiber), she developed her advertising and press business, designing for brands whose authentic lifelong know-how twists between tradition and modernity, taking part on brand image projects as an artistic director as well.

Her work also contains more 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.
