My name is Astrid and I’m one of those 20-somethings who happily refuse to grow up.
My CV consists of many things that seem unrelated: I went to a bilingual language school, then to an art school, studied German (wrote my Thesis on memes) was an aupair and now work in retail.
What has been consistent is my love for creating.
The main aspiration of my work is to make things that enchant people. I love the thought that someone who has a piece I made falls in love with it over and over again every time they look at it.
I also love to create fanart. A very dear friend of mine (taco-yaki.deviantart.com) honored every movie, every anime, every book he finished (and liked) with an artwork. And I found that sort fascinating and very honorary to the original piece that one invests time and effort into making their own interpretation of it.
But I am, first and foremost, a dreamer. I have dreamt as long as I can remember and will continue to do so as long as I can. And I dream that one day I will be able to make a living with my art. And I very much hope to achieve that goal.
Currently I live in Berlin, though I’m very much an Austrian girl still.
Please do note that I can no longer reply personally to every Fav I get; it doesn't mean I'm not extremely happy and grateful about each and every one of them and I cannot tell you how happy I am that you like my art, but by now it takes up too much time and I would rather spend that time creating art.
