I was born in Kiel, Schleswig-Holstein (at the coast of the Baltic Sea), and I grew up further south in Westfalia.
Starting 1986, I trained as a fashion designer in Berlin and then co-founded a company producing fashion clothes with a label of our own.
I left the company in 2004. Since then, I have been working as a freelance artist. I present my works at various exhibitions, on my own as well as together with other artists, and you also find me at several art fairs and art markets that are held on a regular basis.
