About

OTND7093

I am 33 years old and live in Potsdam with my husband Ephraim and our son Samuel.
In 2012, I graduated from the Berlin University of Applied Sciences with a bachelor's degree in fashion design and in 2017, I successfully completed my second degree as an animator at the Konrad Wolf Film University in Potsdam Babelsberg.
Since 2006 I have been working as a freelance artist, portrait artist, illustrator, costume designer and animator. Already during my studies I worked among other things as an illustrator for the popular children's book series Lilly and Anton discover (DelMedioVerlag) and Mats & Frida (Oertinger Verlag).

In addition, several animated short films and music videos were made, such as The Bathtub Captain by musician Whysker and an illustrated music album for the nursery rhymer LilaLauneLena. My animated three-part cartoon series Tweethearts ran at several film festivals around the world in 2017 and was nominated for the Goldenen Spatz 2017 for the price in the category Minis and on the International Animated Film Festival Stuttgart for the price in the category young animation. For the family musical Wemmicks, welches 2017 seine Erstaufführung im Potsdamer Nikolaisaal feierte, entwarf und gestaltete ich das Kostümbild. 2021 habe ich die neuen Kostümdesigns für die Neuinszenierung von Wemmicks designed. Zuletzt habe ich ein neues Musikvideo für Whysker animiert, welches April 2021 erschienen ist. Gelegentlich arbeite ich als Lehrkraft am Gabriele-von-Bülow-Gymnasium in Berlin in den Themenbereichen „Character Design“ und „2D-Animationsfilm“ und arbeite seit November 2021 an einem spannenden Kinderbuchprojekt, welches voraussichtlich 2023 veröffentlicht wird.
