Ariane has been a storyteller all her life, and her teddy bear “Teddy”
and her friends were her first captive audience!
She grew up in Germany and for the last 15 years she has been a traveller too, just like her character Ice/Snow.
She visited countries like the USA, India, Korea and Japan and discovered how new cultures open doors into new worlds, thinking and understanding.

She has ventured through a Psychology degree and her journey took her to the Cambridge School of Arts,
where she completed her MA in Children’s Book Illustration. For the moment, she has settled in London where she lives with her three young children and her cat Luna and thinks of new stories. She loves creating cute and quirky characters and loves making them come alive on the page and from felt.

You can follow her on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. Just look for “arihoma”. That’s short for ARIane HOfMAnn 🙂
