Marie Doerfler is an illustrator and visual artist based in Vienna/Regensburg. 

Her illustrations are deeply influenced by nature, museum visits and everyday observations. They are developed in a playful way of perspective and proportion between graphic structure and the fluidity of living lines. A defining aspect of her work is the influence of print making, characterized by layered colors and textures. The aim of her illustrations is to convey knowledge in an emotional and humorous way, to tell stories and to invite one to dream.

She studied communication and graphic design at TH Augsburg, Falmouth University and illustration at HAW Hamburg. Since then, she has been working for publishing houses, magazines, cultural institutions as well as companies and was awarded with the World Illustration Award in the Advertising Young Talent category.
