My life

Welcome …

Hey everyone! I’m so happy you’re here!

I’m a 17 year old girl named Ronja. I grew up in a world-travelling Family of 8 and we all are unschooled/ worldschooled. Now we live in Mallorca/ Spain, but
we used to live in Costa Rica/ Central America. That’s why I also speak three languages: German, English and Spanish.

My art journey …

I started drawing in September 2020 by doing an online drawing class. I created my first ever realistic drawings with Graphite pencils – Black & white! 

After learning how to draw fur I drew my first bird.
A few months later I learned drawing with coloured pencils. At the beginning it was very difficult for me, because I wasn’t used to drawing with colours, but I drew almost every day and started seeing all of the different colours in fur, eyes, noses etc.

Back then I mainly drew pet portraits.

Later I also tried Acrylic paints, watercolours, pastel pencils and gouache. My style evolved and I started inventing my very own techniques. I realised how I could use and mix mediums how I wanted, instead of keeping it strict and using only one medium per artwork ♡

Here you can see my brothers dog Trixi & my first ever realistic dog drawing. :)

This is snow. One of our rescue cats. He was the first coloured pencil drawing I’ve done. The dog you can see, is my grandma’s dog Dana. She was also one of my first ever portraits!

For some reason, I always loved drawing animals more than people. When we adopted two baby street cats I really wanted to draw both of them! That’s what I did. Through out the next year we rescued more than 14 street cats, a dog, three puppies, even more puppies and a pig!

I drew almost all of our cats & dogs and I also have drawn a few commissions!
