As an illustrator and designer, freelancing for about 15 years, I have been lucky enough to be able to combine my creative passion with my passion of supporting causes that have a positive impact on social issues, the environment and the Arts.
I have been working with sustainable businesses and institutions of various kinds: I’ve worked with community organizations, environmental activists, green businesses, artists, movie makers, museums and social institutions. I have had long-term relationships with creative agencies like Conscious Creative in Berkeley, California, and non-profit organizations like The DO School in Hamburg (now Berlin).
Through the creation of visual identities, logos, websites, business cards, catalogues, brochures, posters and postcards, I’ve helped them to reach out to their customers and clients.
I do what I can as a creative person to have a positive impact on my community.
I am a passionate illustrator and I love to inspire people through art and illustration. I feel that in a lot of cases, it is really true that “a picture is worth a thousand words.” (Even though I do enjoy the text-image pairing a lot.) I am fascinated by the ability of images to spirit the spectator away into some other realities and to initiate contemplation on an intuitive level.
I love listening to the sound of pencil on paper, smelling the aroma of oils or pastels and watching my fingers getting sprinkled with ink — while being repeatedly surprised, observing creatures and scenes that emerge in front of my eyes on paper.
Born in southern Germany, I studied design in Germany (Kassel) and Spain (Valencia). In 2010, after a six-year long San Francisco adventure, I moved from the Bay Area to the city of water in Germany: Hamburg.
I am a big fan of yoga, nature and the Arts, and enjoy them within a joyfully busy family life while engaging myself in social issues through art and design.
Have a look around. And if you feel like working on a project together, or if you’d just like to say hello, please do so — I’d love to hear from you!
