Hi. I’m Andrea Christen, a freelance artist and a drawing instructor living in Königswinter, Germany. Art is my passion and has been a part of my life ever since I was able to hold a pencil.
One of my specialities is the illustration of lyrics and stories on a traditional foundation. I have created artworks for bands and brands like Pink Floyd, AC/DC, Motörhead, Iron Maiden, Blind Guardian, Amon Amarth, Parkway Drive, Shadowrun and Das Schwarze Auge-Myranor to name a few.
I started my professional art career in 2005 beginning in the video game industry. As an artist and art director I have worked on more than 40 games on various platforms (Nintendo DS, Wii and others).
Nowadays I focus on creating traditional artworks in various mediums with a preference for pencil, ink and acrylics.
Learning is an important part of my life. Among my mentors is Glenn Vilppu, with whom I study continuously at vilppuacademy.com. I recommend attending his online classes.
I am attending the Krüger Masterclass every year since 2019 to improve my painting skills.
If you hire me as an artist for your project, you can expect passionately drawn artworks for print or web, delivered within schedule and with professional services.
As a drawing instructor I teach by demonstration and give individual feedback to students of all levels.
I am interested in various styles of art. If you need anything you can not find in my portfolio, please contact me and we can talk about a mockup in the style you prefer. I’m looking forward to working with you.
