Vera was born in Lisbon, Portugal, and grew up in Munich. As for the next 20 years not the tiniest peace of paper was safe from her drawings, she studied illustration at the "Freie Kunstwerkstatt München". After graduating 1998 from the FH Augsburg in Graphic Design she worked as an Art Director in a big adverting agency for the duration of six years.
But the little characters and quirky illlustrations still lived in her head and heart and so she returned to her passion - since 2004 she works as an illustrator for publishers and advertising companies and is currently based in Stuttgart.
She loves books and movies and when she is not drawing she is doing Yoga, does skiing and hiking and travels around the world exploring it over and under water.
