Sanne Dufft was born in Darmstadt, Germany, in 1974. She spent her school career decorating the margins of her exercise books and drawing portraits of her fellow pupils (who liked it) and her teachers (who didn’t always…). She studied Art Therapy in Nürtingen, Germany, and worked with children with a variety of special needs (and special gifts) in Northern Ireland. She has gone on to work for a children’s magazine and illustrated her first picture book, Der Sandelefant (The Sand Elephant), published by Urachhaus, Germany, in Spring 2015. Sanne lives with her husband and three children in beautiful Tübingen, in the South of Germany.
