Carina Lindmeier is a freelance illustrator from Linz, Austria, specializing in digital illustration, with a figurative, contemporary style. Her handmade digital aesthetic features layers of real-life textures, vibrant patterns, bold but harmonious color schemes, and subtle imperfections. Lindmeier’s passion for female empowerment is evident in her larger-than-life illustrations depicting a modern woman’s lifestyle and everyday life.
Lindmeier’s vastly impressive portfolio is full of works featuring independent women with uplifting messages, as well as fun lifestyle and still-life pieces, and numerous works inspired by food and culinary delights that make your mouth water. The illustrator’s uniquely bold style includes dashes, dots, lines, and curves that give her work a certain feel of dynamic energy and movement, reminiscent of street photography or TV cartoons. Recently she illustrated a project by photographer and filmmaker Sophia Emmerich called Queer Food Stories which explores and celebrates queer-owned culinary spaces in New York. The project was created during a live stream for Adobe Live – you can watch the whole process here.
