Hi! I’m Kristina “Pen” Winter, a Hamburg/Germany based freelancer with a variety of styles and skills.
I like to draw character portraits, nature themes and am in love with colours.

As former Lead Technical 2D Animator for Daedalic Entertainment, I was part of adapting Ken Follett’s “The Pillars of the Earth” into a Point and Click Adventure, as well as creating 2D animations and assets for various other games. Nowadays I freelance and own a small business selling some merch at madeby.pen-winter.com.

In my free time I like to collect washi tapes, care for my little collection of succulent plants, tinker with a 3D printer and being susceptible to cat videos.

Bachelor degree in Communication Design
UAS RheinMain 2015

Languages: German – Native | English – Fluent


I am available for freelance and remote visual development (character design, illustration, graphics, 2D animation).
For business enquiries: hello @ pen-winter.com
Sie können mich natürlich auch gerne auf deutsch kontaktieren.
