I was born in 1989 in a town near Hanover, Germany, and after that lived quite a while in a very small village in Lower Saxony. After having graduated from high school and having travelled through Ireland rather without plans for 3 months, I moved from the small village to the big city Hamburg, where I now study graphic design. Apart from drawing and illustration, I have developed a passion for the "living", moving picture and put my studies' emphasis on illustration and animation as well.
In 2012 I got the opportunity to study for one semester at the Universitat Ramon Llull in Barcelona, enjoying the much better weather along the way.
I am currently starting to work on my bachelor project, a 2D animation short, which I will (hopefully) finish around June 2014.
While I try to keep my DeviantArt account as up-to-date as possible, I'm way more active on tumblr, so if you like my stuff, feel free to check it out: susannhoffmann.tumblr.com
