I was born in Germany, and grew up in Lausanne, Switzerland and later in Uelzen Germany. I studied Fine Arts in Hamburg at the FIU ( Free International University ) which had been founded after the idea of Joseph Beuys. After my studies I lived in Greece, Santorini for 14 years, where I had my own gallery ( Gallery Kastelli ) .Since 2004 I live in Melbourne where I had few solo shows. Working now with the theme of travel, angels, Greek Mythology and humans. I like to produce my own colour and like to experiment with ‘new’ old recipes,like Encaustic. I like everything that gives structure !
