I was born and grew up in Germany near the Danish border.
1983 – 90 I studied at the College of Art and Architecture in Kiel and after a diploma in Architecture worked for various architects in Germany and Britain. 1996 I moved to Scotland and concentrated on lino cutting, painting and making ceramic reliefs. I now live with my family in a small village near St Andrews / Scotland.
For my art I prefer colour, pattern, simplified shapes and abstracted space and enjoy developing new ideas to combine these elements in pictures of life around me. Inspiration comes especially from early 20th century art, ‘primitive’ art, contemporary design and nature.
My work is exhibited in galleries throughout Britain and has been selected continuously for the summer show of the Royal Scottish Academy. Amongst other commissions I’ve been asked to do the illustration for the promotion of the East Neuk Music Festival, for the songbooks of the National Youth Choir of Scotland and the Heritage North website in Scotland.
