I studied graphic design and Illustration in Freiburg/Germany, now I'm based in the United Kingdom where I work as a freelance graphic designer/illustrator and natural history illustrator. Every now and then as well as photographer. I have always been inspired by nature itself, as well as fantasy and fiction literature, movies and comics. I illustrate and paint mostly in traditional media: acrylic, pencil, natural pigments, metal point, sometimes oil, as well as digital in Photoshop or Illustrator.
I hope you like my artwork, any comments are warmly welcome, please don't be offended if I can't always find the time to answer.
