About me

My name is Lisa, since I was born in Germany, my name is pronounced slightly different from the English version, with a round "s" instead of a sharp one.

Illustrations, design and photography are my passions which I am now combining through my projects :)

I haven't participated in many competitions lately since I was busy graduating. However, I did win an illustration competition in a draw-your-own-icebear contest by the government of the city of Cologne (Germany) when I was in primary school, winning as "one of the first prices" a really fluffy icebear :)

1st place "Japan&Germany Photography Competition" by the DJJG e.V.
