Irmgard Schanner 

I was born and raised in a town sixty kilometers away from Belo Horizonte, in the Cerrado, a kind of Brazilian savannah in the state of Minas Gerais.

I graduated in Fine Arts in the UFMG (Federal University of Minas Gerais) in 1988. 

In 1993 I discovered Biological illustration and then I was encouraged to pursue my passion to drawing nature,  because of my increasing interest in Biology.
