I was born 1984 in Hamburg and already at a young age I got inspired working with pens, paint and paper.
After my graduation from high school I traveled through south america where I attended an art class in Buenos Aires, Argentina which gave me the idea to study illustration.
In 2011 I graduated with a diploma in illustration and in 2014 I finished my Masters. I work as a freelance illustrator mainly for children books. Many of my inspirations come from my children but also from people and animals that surround me. When you look closely you can see that a snoring dog or a cat tumbling from the roof full of bliss could be inspiration for a whole bookshelf full of sketchbooks. (Foto: Julia Knabbe
