At an early age, I had recognised that me being religious in my everyday life was different and therefore confusing for the majority of the German society. I found comic art to be a suitable medium for empowering myself and other people of color, for creating dialogue and empathy by using honesty, sensitivity and humour. I currently live in Berlin with my husband.

The name Tuffix was originally created by some school mates as one of my countless nicknames, then used as a user name on Deviantart and finally got stuck as my official artist’s name.
