MY STORY

The longest I now live and work in Berlin. Before that I spent my time in Gießen, Passau, New York City and Vienna. 

 

Since October 2021 I'm also studying graphic storytelling for my master's degree in Hamburg at the HAW with Anke Moistenberger. 

 

In March 2022 is my Graphic novel debut 'BUSTING'- which was created under the supervision of Prof. Ulli Lust - was published by 'Edition Moderne' in Zurich. 

 

my next work will be released in winter 2024. My special focus is on travel and interpersonal issues, as well as things that cannot be put into words. I mainly work with pencil and digital paint. I have a soft spot for paper, graphite, paint and erasers, but I also do digital commissions. 

 

Because I not only If I want to share my knowledge with my desk, I also give workshops and hold seminars in German and in English. I have been teaching illustration as a freelance lecturer since December 2023. I'm always open to new and exciting projects: Inquiries for workshops, lectures or illustrations are welcome by email.
