is a German painter.
“Although I was always interested in nature and the animal kingdom, I first focused on portraits of women because I was and am still fascinated in the concept and our understanding of beauty. After my studies when I got the oppurtunity to take care of my own garden, I knew that nature must take a greater role in my art. It began when I started to attract birds with seeds near to my studio’s window just to enjoy watching them. It didn’t take long for them to appear in my paintings. The fascination that lies in the circle of the year, the fresh beginning in the spring that slowly turns into decay in fall captivates me deeply. Since I focused on botanics my world view changed deeply. I notice every tiny plant that grows between curbstones or in a stone wall. Another important role in my art play memories of my childhood: dinosaurs, unicorns, fantasy figures, animes and fairytales. All of that and my admiration for Japanese pop and art culture are combined to a vision I want to share.”
