Who we are

Stephanie grew up in a village in the Black Forest, Germany. Since she was little, she loved to dive in the ocean – her second home. Officially, she is working at the ICBM as a marine biologist, investigating seagrass meadows, tropical coral reefs, but also colorful reefs right in front of our doorsteps in the North Sea. In reality, she is probably off on her next adventure, busy making new friends underwater.


Paula always liked to paint. As a child she was rather afraid of the ocean, but that changed quickly once she was able to dive and look beneath the surface. She works as a biologist and studies the creatures under water. With her illustrations she wants to inspire others to love and protect them.
