I am a part time professional pet portrait and wildlife artist.


Drawing and animals have always been my passion since I was a child. After a break of more than 10 years after school I found my way back to art in 2017 - thanks to coloured pencils which my boyfriend gave me as a present. I immediately fell in love with them and could not live without them anymore.


I am using mostly Polychromos, colourless splenders and some scratching techniques. My aim is not only realism but to create an artwork that is more beautiful than a photo can ever be. I want the observers of my drawings to look directly into the soul of the animal.
