'Letting go of the self that I know and embracing the tickles of the soul is an awesome journey.
I would crumble if I had to knowingly reach a final destination.
And yet it is all about energy and fuel; releasing and creating this buzz ...
vibrations, surges and impulses that continuously spark the aliveness.'
Born in Germany; raised, schooled, lived and worked in South Africa; currently living and working in and around Vienna.
Everyone and everything is my teacher and my personal learning continuous; curiosity and passion in life, nature, people and multi-cultural environments, and dabbling in whatever grabs my interest (music, dance, painting, etc).
I received formal training in architecture and hold a BSc (Hons) and a Diploma in Design and Innovation (UK).
My art is guided by my internal visions, my emotions, instincts and perceptions at the time. Concious thinking on any particular subject seldom enters my creative process and awareness is the given moment. This is a natural and spontaneous occurrence that requires no planning. This allows my present state to guide my hands, choose the medium(s) and colours, the subject (if one emerges) and the overall composition. The results are therefore arbitrary and do not follow any formula or specific style. Naming each piece undergoes a similar process and is mostly intuitive, based on mood and what I see in the work as it unfolds or once it is completed.

However, it is up to the viewer; in what they bring along while looking; what they are feeling at that given moment; their experiences from the past, ... all this influences their awareness and what they see or accept as part of their current reality.
Interests: exploring different mediums, painting, photography and digital graphics
