Vera Eggermann studied at the Hochschule Luzern – Design & Kunst. She has been writing and illustrating picture books for the last 25 years. She lives in Lucerne and London and commutes between country air and the big city, idyll and contradiction. Her work is similarly eclectic and stylistically varied, and has been nominated for and awarded many prizes. In her books she creates harmonious scenes inhabited by quirky but lovable characters. She combines cunning and worldly observations of everyday life with sumptuous worlds of fantasy.
