Annikas Arts Tierporträt Künstlerin alias Annika Schmitt


How nice that you found your way here. My name is Annika , I'm in my mid-twenties and come from the tranquil Odenwald. Both the fun of drawing and painting and the passion for animals have accompanied me my entire life.

I grew up with dogs, cats and horses and I have always been very enthusiastic about the diversity of the animal world. You can certainly imagine that this is why the pictures from my childhood always showed animals.

When I was around ten years old, my demand for realistic drawing became ever greater and little by little I created more and more pencil portraits. What started out as pure fun quickly became more and so I was soon able to draw my first commissions.

After a long break from drawing, I started picking up pencils again during my studies and within a very short time I was able to found Annikas Arts with active support.

A drawing is a very special kind of memory.

My aim is to create an image of the animal that is as lively as possible, but which not only visually matches the original, but above all illustrates the character and essence.

There is no better compliment than seeing the joy of the owners when they hold the portrait of their favorite four-legged friend in their hands for the first time.
