Biography

Life Events

Born in 1963 in Leipzig.
1982-85 Study at the Hochschule für Graphik & Buchkunst Leipzig in the Drawing Class.
1999 – 2002 CimData-Akademie Berlin – Media Designer.
Since 2012 I´m working as a freelance artist. 2013 I opened my private art school, where I teach
3 times a week the art of drawing and painting.
Statement
My art is about desire, the desire to show through an feminine style how women can see
themselves if they choose. This idea stands in complete opposition to the proletarian and rather
masculine art of East Germany where I grew up. This has become a visual response to my early
life experience: like a gesture of artistic liberation. My paintings aim to fulfil a quest for beauty
and luxury, which I was denied when growing up in Eastern Europe.
I started my arts life by taking life-drawing classes at 17 and have since developed an intense
interest in several techniques of drawing, in the human shape, particularly the female form. It
has taken me almost 40 years to realize my calling in life and become a full time artist.
Mission
With my work, I have a strong desire to portray everyday women in a glamorous way. My
models come from all walks of life, but on canvass they get to be superstars, divas, temptresses,
goddesses and heroines. I particularly want woman to feel good about themselves, through my
art. I want to show the world how beautiful they are. I want people to feel the love and
tenderness that I have for my subjects in every drawing/painting.
