...my name is Maike Geller and I live with my husband Kim and our two children in Essen, Germany.
My enthusiasm for drawing already began in childhood. After the Abitur and during my career training this passion increased for art.
With our two children Benni (born in 2013) and Emily (born in 2015) a lifetime wish has come true for Kim and me. The free drawing was for me more and more a wonderful balance to everyday life and takes now besides my family a great place in my life.
For some time past, I draw playful, dreamy, and romantic motifs for coloring with my heartfelt devotion. Wonderful blossoms in all different kinds of
shapes and sizes as well as mystical ideas play an important role.
In June, 2015 my Etsy online shop "Fleurdoodles" started with hand-drawn coloring pages.
Two months later my first adult coloring book appeared in the USA.
On the 7th of March, 2016 my second coloring book "Urlaubsglück & Sonnenschein"
("Holiday Happiness & Sunshine") followed. This was published in Germany and was sold over 10.000 times.
Free drawing creates a peace of my mind and, even, emotional balance and fortitude. I am totally convinced that this will transfer onto everyone who will color any of my designs and motifs.
My inspiration is nature. Once I have a new idea for a motif, I immediately have to grab my pens in order to put down my basic idea. However, this is not easy with two young children, but, my husband Kim supports me in every respect, which I am very thankful for.
While working at my desk, I can completely forget about the stress of everyday life. Time is flying when I design new motifs.
My mother supports my Instagram account and supplies me with beautifully colored pictures which are uploaded on my account. My father provides his huge technical knowledge and assists me in digitizing my motifs.
I grew up with different pets and appreciate the exposure to animals. Therefore, I am a convinced vegetarian.
My mare accompanies me now already for 19 years and lives appropriate to the species in a loose barn.
