I am an illustrator, graphic designer and visual artist based in Germany and The Netherlands.

I studied graphic design in Bielefeld, Germany and have for many years greatly enjoyed designing books: covers and layouts and internal and external typography.  I love the feel of books, the paper and the interplay of images and text. 

I also create logos, brochures, flyers, business papers, posters, corporate designs and not least, a lot of Illustrations.

I worked with an illustrator agency  for publishers, magazines and advertising. After 10 years, I ended the collaboration and decided to dedicate more time to developing myself artistically.  This period was immensely inspiring for me and has enriched my work. I have done exhibitions in Germany, The Netherlands and Italy.

Most of my drawings emerge analog, sometimes as a mix or digital. I work in different media and my work is always garnished with the humor that carries me through life.

 

I welcome new challenges from any artisitic realm. If you‘ve got an idea, I‘d love to hear from you!

If you are interested in an original artwork or an art print, you can make an order in my Etsy shop  or directly with me.
