Ulrike Martens, born in Gelsenkirchen in 1962, is a conceptual artist and illustrator. She works and lives in Moers. The focus of her illustrative work lies on comical art. She draws and writes with both hands. This technique, which she developed during her art studies, led her from painting to comics to satirical stories and illustrations. She mostly finds her topics in observations of everyday life - or better said: the topics find her.
