ACEO Clown portrait #257 "Clown Ottilie"


ACEO Clown portrait #257 "Clown Ottilie"

2 ½” x 3 ½” (64 x 89 mm)

ACEO clown portrait #257 inspired by a very special hospital clown "Ottilie" (Anne Schwede) from Paderborn, Germany. Anne trained as a clinic clown and after this her clowning adventure started. She worked as a clinic clown in hospitals and care institutions for many years. 

Thanks to the founding of her clown school, the "Humorkolleg", many new clinic and school clowns now enrich the health care system and visit schools and day-care centres. 

Also she has a "nose workshop" where they make special clown noses in different colours and shapes. See more info @humorkolleg 

Recently Anne wrote and illustrated a children's book about the clown Ottilie PfefferMinze. Ottilie is a specialist in measuring, a world champion in flying, a happy owner of letters and she has the craziest ideas for games. Anne started a crowdfunding on Startnext to bring the book to life. Support her wonderful work!
