Dominique Pagel was born in the Island of Rügen, Germany in 2001. She is currently residing in Stralsund, a small coastal town on the Baltic Sea. Living in this town has strengthened her connection to water and the sea, which is reflected in some of her artworks.
At the moment, she is a student at a secondary school in Stralsund, and aspiring to become a full-time artist after finishing school. Her love for drawing has manifested itself for the first time when she started out with minor sketches at the age of twelve. For the past three years, she has been focusing on the practice of painting.
