I was born in a small town in former East Germany, escaped to Berlin before moving to London from where I headed east again to spend some time in Singapore and Malaysia. Currently I live in Paris. 

From an early age on, I couldn’t decide what I loved more, words or images, with the result that I pursued both interests at different times in my life. I studied literature and linguistics but am also a trained graphic designer.

My graphic art often combines both my own and found photos with other imagery and text. I’m interested by notions of appropriation and re-contextualisation. In a visually oversaturated world, how can you reclaim some sort of control over the visual narrative surrounding you?

I am open to:

commissions and collaborations
content creation
creative consulting
