My Bio

I studied arts at the Kunstakademie Hamburg, a private art school with an anthroposophic background. The school also provides the option of studying to become an art therapist. I graduated there in 2015.

I like to listen to music while I work on art projects. My favourite genre of music depends a lot on my current mood and/or the atmosphere I'm aiming for in my painting/drawing, but I have a somewhat eclectic taste ranging from rock and symphonic metal to pop to classical music and filmmusic.

My favourite quote (from Antoine de Saint-Exupery): "It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye."
