Annika Tara Hansche

Has dichotomous interests, ranging from sculpting hair, to painting several hundred miniature watercolored gnomes to extracting teeth from road kill for use in her soft sculptures. A talented creative specializing in fiber arts, drawing, illustration, sculpture, and wearables, she also holds a license in cosmetologist in the state of New Hampshire, USA. She recently relocated to Berlin, Germany with her husband and two daughters, and is now spending much of her time figuring out how to thrive in her new surroundings. Her weekly employment entails teaching children in the wilderness how to make fires, identify wild edibles, sleep in leaf shelters, and be better people. Her nightly endeavors entail making art, making music, making food, making love and sleeping a bit.
