I was born in Bamberg Germany and have lived in the United States and London.Throughout my life I have always painted and been involved in the creative aspect of my work. My inspiration comes from colours and shapes that exists all around me. I love strong colours. The medium I use varies from oil to watercolours to acrylic. At the moment, I am very much inspired by the abstract form of painting.
For many years now, I have focused solely on my art. Although I have taken a number of art classes/courses at various stages of my life, I consider myself very much a self-taught artist.Recently, I have started to exhibit my art. In 2007, one of my original abstract pieces of work, "Galaxy Ice", was exhibited at the Royal Academy of Arts Summer Exhibition in Londo ,
