Born in 1958 in England, I was the youngest
of four children and the only girl.
Talking about Riding! Horses were my biggest passion. I´ve been with horses and ponies since I was ten years old, and I wanted it to be my profession. Unfortunately, life is not always as we think it will be, and I had to take a different path.
Without speaking a word of German, I came to Germany in 1977! I learned German mostly from newspapers, books and talking to my children. Since then, I have been a housewife and mother.
Despite everything else, my love for horses was one of the main points of my life and here I was still able to be with horses.
I´ve been working with web design and creating graphics since 2002. An obvious choice when I started with web design was to create a home page about horses. After that I wanted to make a special webpage, filled with jokes, funny poems and many short stories. For this I needed a special character as a mascot.
When I started to draw the character,"Fionze"suddenly
came to life in my dreams! No one could imagine that this little sweet and
mysterious figure should develop her own life. So
the story started.
Also a big thank you to my four children, who have always stood by me.
Here I would also like to say thank you to my brother Bev Ransom for proof reading and correcting the English manuscript.
