Doro Petersen studied visual communication and illustration at Berlin’s University of the Arts, and in Bilbao and Barcelona. She is a free-lance illustrator based in Berlin, where she shares a studio with K100. She creates her sensuous drawings, with their wealth of detail, using primarily handmade techniques like sketching, stamping, paper cuts, collage and silk screening.
Drawing is movement and mobility of eye, head, hand and pen! Doro Petersen not only follows that motto, she teaches it; as an experienced art teacher, she mounts exciting and playful workshops for art aficionados both small and large. She has developed and implemented workshop formats, such as the popular sketching walks, for museums (Bauhaus Archive, Museum of Decorative Arts, Museum of Prints and Drawings, Buchstabenmuseum etc.), schools, public institutions and corporate groups.
