Portrait of Reine Kurth

Hello, my name is Reine (pronounced somewhat “Renn”) Kurth. I’m from Basse-Ham, a village in Lorraine, France, and I live in Bremen, Germany, where I found love ;)

I’ve been drawing since longer than I can remember ;) When I was not quite 3 years old my grandfather shot a video where, upon learning that my sister will soon be born, I started drawing her with chalk on my small green board :)

I’ve been developing embedded software since 1997. Some code I wrote flies on the Airbus A380 and in Galileo navigation satellites :)

I’ve been a freelance illustrator since 2018. I hope to be able to pass on to those who see my pictures and read the stories they illustrate some of what my forebears, be they famous or unknown, have given me through their pictures and stories, from my childhood until today!

In February 2020 I’ve answered the questions of “Sieben auf einen Strich” (in German). In the interview I speak about what drawing means to me, and what is not all the same to me in life ;)
