I was born (1978) and raised in Germany. My grandmother who was a painter instructed me in painting techniques and a variety of visual arts from the age of four. Trips to many of the world´s ancient cultures as well as the engagement in literature, philosophy and the spiritual traditions of East and West have ever since fed into the creative source of expression. Since I was twenty I have travelled and lived in several places in North and South America, particularly drawn by the Native American understanding and bond with nature. I studied literature at the University of Barcelona and moved to Mallorca two years ago, cherishing and feeling inspired by the gentle embrace of this island.
