I was born in Mainz, Germany as the middle one of four siblings. My grandparents had a a restaurant, my parents have a restaurant and my brother has a restaurant.
I did not want to have a restaurant! I wanted to draw so I moved to Trier to study communication design at the University of applied science. During my Bachelor I specialized myself on
illustration and drawing.
Meanwhile I was traveling a lot, especially around South- and Central America and I lived in Portugal for 7 months.
I fell in love with Portugal and so I decided to do my Drawing Master at the Faculty of Fine Arts, Lisboa.
The thing I like the most is creating backgrounds, structures and patterns. And combine them with detailed drawings. Within this technique I work analogue as well as digitally. I also do Graphic
Design to join illustrations and typography.
In generally I really appreciate working with structures and use printing techniques like Linoleum or Monotype and creating Collages.
