I'm an illustrator with a PhD in Biology, who creates heart-warming designs for greetings cards and illustrations. My motto is ‘made with love to make you smile’. My greeting cards line is named "La Luciérnaga Valiente" (The Brave Firefly) because even in the dark moments they are made to lighten up your face with a smile.
As an artist I love the softness and hand-painted charm of watercolours, its uncontrollable nature and the transparent but vibrant colours. As a biologist I deeply value environmental protection and the overall prevention of climate change. Therefore, each of my designs is initially hand-drawn and watercolour painted in Altona (Hamburg) and then printed in the same neighbourhood leaving a minimal carbon footprint. Environmentally friendly, from print to biodegradable clear bags.
Because of my background as a biologist my designs are full of lovely happy animals. It is my dream that animals and people can live together in harmony in future. For that reason I will donate 5% of my earnings to the WWF every year. For this to become feasible, I need to sell at least 500 greetings cards a year. Let´s reach that goal together, every card counts!
