I grew up in a tiny village in the North of Germany in an old farm house surrounded by sheep, horses and chickens. Well, sort of.
I have worked as a freelance illustrator for almost a decade and draw and write books for children and other people. Today I live in Atlanta, GA with my husband Mike, an awesome kid called Allister and Jules and Jim the cats. (I’m definitely a cat person, but I will draw dogs for you.)

I love traveling the world, do all stuff crafty and am an average cook. I also have a mildly obsession with fruit carvings.

I am a founding member of Paper Ghost Studio a small illustration studio and gallery space in Candler Park, Atlanta, where I have been organizing art shows for the last 2 years.

I have worked for all kinds of people and would love to work with you, too.
