My work primarily consists of oil paintings which clash bizarre characters against the worlds they inhabit. I was born to an immigrant mother and handyman father in the late 1980's. Many of my childhood summers were spent in the sun exploring the fields and forests surrounding my mother’s home village in Germany. During this time I continually created characters and narratives out of every box, toy or drawing tool available. As a young adult I began to delve into various media including teaching myself to reprogram a video game to tell my stories. Nevertheless, I always found myself pulled back towards drawing and the endless possibilities inherent in a simple 2-dimensional surface.

Currently, I am living and painting in Berlin. My paintings have developed in a way that celebrates my interest in classical representation, post-impressionism, and symbolism within a contemporary Metamodern framework.
