Welcome to my Website!

 

My name is Anja.  I'm a 29 years old artist from Hanover, Germany.

 

I started collecting model horses at the age of seven. Over the years I assembled a quite large collection of Schleich-horses and of course my beloved Barbie-Horse 'Lucky'.

 

When I grew up I decided that model horses are not cool anymore. I started Vet-school and moved from my parents. Unfortunately I stopped painting at that time too. Becoming a Vet is a hard thing...

 

 

But in 2010 I decided that my poor old models don't deserve to be forgotten in a cardboard box. I started researching what to do with them, and found the art of model horse-customizing.

 

And here I am 7 years later: a self employed artist!

 

 

During the years I tried many different techniques... pastels, acrylics, oils, pencils and airbrush.

 

I still use all of them, depending on the colour I want to paint.

 

My speciality is hairing! I love haired horses and I'm happy to take commissions for it!

 

Since I have a Borzoi (Russian wolfhound) I got many requests from friends to paint dog-figurines too.

 

I will offer commission spots for animal portrait drawings in the future too!
