Anne Radstaak was born in 1959 in Kleve, Germany. Most of the time she spent her youth in the Netherlands. Her fathers family is dutch. Allthough she allready wanted to become an artist when she was a 10 years old girl, in the opinion of her parents she first had to learn a real profession. That was a training in a hotel. For 4 years she worked in the Maritim Hotel, Bad Salzuflen, and the Frankfurt Intercontinental Hotel untill she started with arts.
Since 1988 she is living and working in a old tudor style farmhouse in a little village called Buch – 15 minutes away from the Middle Rhine Valley. In her barnhouse atelier she works next door to horses, her two dogs and a few other inhabitants.
