♥ about me

A little bit about me and what I do

I'm a graphic- and informationdesigner living and working in Germany.

I'm 27 years old and passionate in drawing since I was little.

When I was 11 years old my first Anime was 'Lady Oscar', followed by 'Sailor Moon' when I was 14, which I watched at my aunt's home during the summer holidays the first time. Since that time I started drawing fanarts.

Since 2003 I started an apprenticeship as a graphic designer. From now on I began drawing more seriously - and not only 'Anime-style'.

And now? I love it to draw ACEO-Cards since September 2009. Because they are quick to draw and really fun to me. So a lot of my works are currently 2.5" x 3.5" (6,4 x 8,9 cm) large.
