My name is Juliane Mertens-Eckhardt,
All my life i was drawing and painting. I grew up at the baltic sea - in the north of germany. My father is a painter and my mother a ceramicist. My work is my life, and it doesn’t matter, where i go - ideas just keep on flooding my head, I’m constantly scribbling notes and making lists.. The circumstances of my life have put me in a place that I love and that I call home. Here in berlin pankow - a very green part of berlin, i am working from my home studio as a freelance illustrator. With my sweet daughter, my musician husband, two lovely parrots and my friends, I have built myself a colorful nest filled with art, old kids books and good music, that inspire me.
