My Candice Huffine greeting card also looks lovely framed!
This girl was drawn by me as one simple line of pencil on paper. I combined her with a gorgeous image of a tattooed South Sea islander I found in an old book about body art.

About

Pencil portraits of selected celebrities and other awesome people.

I am Annemarie Schumacher, a creative entrepreneur working from my home studio in Berlin.

My most favourite thing is to draw faces! My portraits of celebrities to me represent happy collective memories, and I love how they let me connect with people from all corners of the world. I really enjoy doing custom portraits for people as well!

When drawing, I like pushing boundaries: what is the bare minimum of lines needed to capture a face, and a personality? Often I will combine photo-realistic elements with graphic or decorative elements. In every drawing I strive for balance in composition, and harmony of line and tone.

Next to making creative work myself, I find great joy in teaching others. I recently started a blog, as a resource for creative souls who'd like to draw, but think that they can't. I also teach a few different drawing workshops here in Berlin. My conviction is that anyone can learn how to draw, when provided with the right exercises and techniques.

If you’d ask me why I do what I do (working as a creative, helping others to overcome their creative obstacles), my answer would be this: I just can’t bare to see creative potential going unfulfilled. For myself as well as for others!

Making a living as an artist is definitely challenging, but nothing feels better than trusting my gut and relying on the skills that have been inside me all along. Being creative, I know when something is working, and when something is not. There are no limits to what I can learn, and no limits to what I can do.
