Nice to meet you.

I am happy that you found your way to my website. Enjoy browsing and if you are interested in learning more about me and my way of doing art…

I carry a great enthusiasm for fantastic, profound and atmospheric storytelling. Bringing these stories visually to life gives me a special form of fulfillment and meaning.

Things really got serious when I started studying industrial design. Even though it’s quite different from illustration and concept art, it still opened up the world of design and visual meaning to me. Industrial design is especially about conceptual product development. Important was the drawing phase, user analysis and finally bringing those concepts to life with visual models built at the various workshops. The three-dimensional work has shaped my visual language hugely.

The master’s degree of children’s book illustration in Cambridge, England, however really shaped my way of art and illustration. I can truly say that these 1.5 years have been pure joy. This is where I took the biggest step forward both craft-wise and personally.

With my illustrations I want to create an enthusiasm for the craft as well as for emotionally moving images. It is this fulfillment and enthusiasm that I would like to share. I would love to have a positive impact on people’s life through my art. That would be true fulfillment for me.
