was born in 1971 in Netherlands. Aged three the family moved to Hamburg, at age six to Vienna. She quickly took up art and music. She was admitted into the 'University of Music and Performing Arts Vienna', where she studied the cello for five years. Since childhood Richter also displayed impeccable rendering skills, but as she grew older music and performance consumed her time.
