lives and works in Dresden.
In my artistic work I deal with the nature of perceived realities. I approach these by means of a poetic visual language, in which symbols from history, mythology and dreams mix with the everyday and the personal. The canvas offers me the space in which I can freely create references and develop narratives, constantly searching for the balance between realistic and naive figuration. From the painting itself, I thus develop stories and still images that exist in an atmospheric space, condensing memories into abstract moments that become universally accessible and experiential here.

On my postcards you can see my playful approach to the arrangement of motifs that meet in the picture and speak to each other in associative ways.
