Announcement    As a freelance nature illustrator, I draw and design all my motifs myself. I produce all high-quality art prints and stationery products in Germany in cooperation with environmentally conscious printers. I attach great importance to a resource-saving production process with short transport routes and therefore work wherever possible with fairly produced materials such as E.B FSC-certified environmental papers and ecological printing inks. Your order will be packed without plastic and consists partly of recycled packaging materials from my neighborhood. I always try to be environmentally conscious in my work.

On Etsy since 2012

Paper, pen and scissors

I mainly work with crayons and watercolors. The artist colored pencils I use are characterized by a high color brilliance and light fastness and are available in over a hundred color nuances. Different effects can be achieved by different attachments, so that delicate to strong lines and hatchings are created. The colored pencils are very suitable for finely crafted drawings. I attach great importance to a natural colouring. I also like to make collages from old magazines of the 50s and 60s. So I like to work analog and with pen, paper, scissors and glue. My art prints are wonderful reproductions, absolutely comparable to the original. I print digitally on 225 g/sqm cardboard. The cardboard is satin on the front in a warm white satin, which comes very close to the paper on which I draw and provides extremely brilliant colors and high contrasts. In addition to my commissioned work, I produce high-quality stationery and art prints. I design my own products and produce exclusively in Germany in cooperation with environmentally conscious printers. I attach great importance to a resource-saving production process with short transport routes and therefore work wherever possible with fairly produced materials such as e.B FSC-certified environmental papers and ecological printing inks.

I was born and raised on the green edge of the city, in the east of Berlin. For more than thirty years now, I have been living here in the middle of the city. Even as a teenager, I moved out of my home to work here. I have been very happy with my husband for 27 years, have a 17 year old daughter and a crazy Chihuahua named Pepe. 
I discovered my love for drawing at a very early age. My career aspiration in the fifth grade was to be an illustrator, but it was going to be a very long way to get there. Also, at some point I decided to do more things that really mean something to me and that make me happy. Because I am of the opinion only then you get good results. 
My great love for the animal and plant world is always reflected in my work. I sell in my own online shop, on Etsy and to small shops throughout Germany and Switzerland. I also give workshops on nature illustration that take place in my allotment garden in the summer. The circle closes again, because the garden is my source of inspiration and my haven of peace.

For current reasons: I have no employees, so I process all orders personally. Since I also always work on illustration orders and book projects, I usually need 3 to 5 days to process the orders. Most of the time, however, I'm a little faster. On weekends I am in the garden and offline to recharge my batteries. That's why I prefer to answer questions about my products on Monday, when I'm back at the computer. I am of the opinion that as an artist/entrepreneur I also have a right to a break on the weekend. After all, we very small companies also have a family, private life and a right to rest. I hope you understand this and continue to rate your purchase in my shop as great and friendly as before. I am very happy about every positive evaluation. For us, reviews mean more than just five stars. They are important to us so that we know that the work we have been doing for years with dedication and passion makes sense. Because our aim is always to make you happy as a customer.

it greets you
