Drawing New Zealand's

stunning landscape in 2012.

This could be a self-portrait. 

Papilio at her very first Comic Con 2015. My "artistic direction" changed a lot after this event.


“My love for drawing usually appears, when I invest a lot of time in the tiniest things. The way I paint is very time-consuming and the opposite of efficient producing. When I draw I forget about time, rules and all the craziness out there. The only thing that matters is, to transform my thoughts and feelings into something visible and reaching the state, people describe as “flow”. These are my favourite moments during the process, because when I see the results on canvas after beeing a long time on "work-mode", it feels like waking up from an awesome journey.”
