parallel universe


i am an East West German artist and writer based in Paris, France.

after studying literature and linguistics in Berlin, and graphic design in London, and after many years of a rather nomadic life – jumping back and forth between the UK, Germany, France, Singapore and Malaysia – i now work and live in Paris.

my first love was (and always will be) words, with art coming in a close second, chronologically speaking, as i discovered it only thanks to being able to read about it.

after leaving Germany, i started to experiment with writing, photography, illustration and graphic design until i discovered collage as the medium that combines it all and works for me.

i am the founder and creative director of Paris Collage Collective.

i am open to collaborations and available for all types of editorial illustrations projects , print or online, on/off or long-term.

please get in touch ︎
