After having learned different trades, starting with Office-IT and then Media Art and Design, I felt that wasn't "it". Through lucky circumstances I was given the opportunity to go to Art Academy at age 27. Painting had been a childhood passion and returning to it felt like coming home.
I graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in 2011. Since then I feel I have not stopped learning; experimenting with newly discovered techniques is an important part of my work. Combined with a life-long passion for history and politics I make paintings that tell contemporary stories with an "Old Master" atmosphere.
I am one of the founding members of the Yacht Club Leutzsch art community in Leipzig.
