Dwinita Larasati, who is from Jakarta, graduated from the Industrial Department of Faculty of Arts & Design, Bandung Institute of Technology, in 1997. In 1998 she went to The Netherlands to pursue her study, and got her Master's degree from The Design Academy in Eindhoven. She has been living in Amsterdam since 2000, and is conducting a doctoral research at Delft University of Technology. Tita has been making doodles during all her travels since she was very young, but only started compiling them in 1995, when she made daily sketches during her apprenticeship in a design company in Germany. Her drawing style has gradually changed, but she is consistent in her preference to produce 'instant drawings' with black gel pen.
