I’m Tanya Heidrich, a.k.a. Stillo Noir, an illustrator, artist and pattern designer specializing in all things black and white

Raised in Switzerland and now based in sunny Valencia, Spain, I draw inspiration from the simple beauty of everyday things, from alpine flora and leafy plants in surrounding nature, to manhole covers and tiles in urban landscapes. Enhancing the quiet details and shifting focus away from overall forms and color, I play with texture and details to create fun, unique designs with a handmade quality.

With a bachelor from the Maryland Institute College of Art and a background as a freelance graphic designer, I’ve developed a keen eye for composition and cohesion that I continue to apply across disciplines today.

I enjoy the process of creation as much as the final product, so don’t hesitate to check out my Instagram if you’re curious to see new work in the making.
