Line Hoven was born in Bonn, Germany. After working as an assistant costume- and set designer at the Kassel State Theatre, she decided to poke her nose into something new. She ended up studying visual communication at the Art School in Kassel.
Two years later she switched to the University of Applied Sciences Hamburg to study illustration. She graduated and is now working as a freelance illustrator and comic artist. Her first graphic novel “Liebe schaut weg” won the ICOM Independent award for the best independent comic in 2008 and was translated into four languages. In 2010 she received the e.o.plauen sponsorship award and in 2013 the residency fellowship of the Literarische Colloquium Berlin.
Besides that she sometimes sells records at Michelle Records.
