b 1981 Lives and works in Berlin, Germany.


Art for me is more than decoration. Art is the result of creative energy, opening its creator, as well as the viewer, to new visionary worlds.

Inside this world, my thoughts are free and the space for ideas is infinite. Who I am and who I strive to be, is in my hand alone. Whether painting, sketching, animating movies or designing stage sets – the ways and possibilities to express my ideas are as versatile as the perspectives I want to share.
