About

I grew up in a very small town in Germany surrounded by forests, farmland and wild nature. Art for me is an endless search. During my progression I had experienced and discovered different periods of styles within my work. Especially in the last 7 years since I started to introduce more and more texture and texturing materials, my work underwent significant changes, not only in physical appearance but also in subject and meaning. Today , working and almost playing with these materials and mediums that I use in my works are very important for the proposition of my art. I still try to renew my art with every work that I approach, trying to find new answers and new solutions, within this search there are still more discoveries expected.
