“Through my work,

I hope to inspire people to look deeply

into their hearts,

to find their own passion

and to rediscover the world of magic and wonder

that is all around us.”

I was born 1992 in a little village in south-west Germany. From early age I expressed myself creatively through painting, later through writing and handicrafts.

My kindergarten-time has already been full of paintings with sunsets, flowers and butterflies- these images have never lost their magic for me, they still make me feel connected to my inner child. ;-)

 

Since then, my art has gone through different stages, from acrylic landscape painting (2011-2012), more realistic charcoal drawing (2009-2014) to abstract Zendoodle Art (2015-2016) and to more visionary work recently (2017) … who knows where it will go from there...

 

Different cultures have always fascinated me. They inspired my way of thinking and my creations.

Out of that reason I studied social anthropology and Chinese when I was 19. However, I more and more realized that university was too bureaucratic and too rationalized for me to get inspired. I often found myself tired, angry or frustrated during my university years.

 

However, university also gave me the opportunity to make my first steps into Asia. Thanks to a scholarship I was given the opportunity to study one year in China (2013-14).

The time I’ve spent in China taught me (in the hard way) to appreciate simple things and not to take life too seriously... However, it is also through China that I rediscovered my love for painting. I was longing for more creative freedom and a new, meaningful way of expression...

It started when I first visited a Tibetan area in the Yunnan province 2014, where I got introduced to Buddhist Thangka paintings and meditation. This taught me to set a good intention for the painting process, and also how to be very patient. Painting itself became a form of meditation and a spiritual quest.  

From that time on, Buddhist philosophy and art more and more interested me. I started to take a break from university to explore Nepal and Thailand. In Thailand I reconnected more deeply with my creative site explored the art of Zentangle. Zentangle is a free art form that is guided by spontaneity and intuition, exploring colors and shapes. The more I did Zentangle, the more I felt committed to paint. From there, the dream was born to learn more skills to transfer my inner visions on canvas.

 

Beginning of 2017 I first visited the Vienna Academy of Visionary Art.

It has been one of the most inspiring places I’ve ever visited; not at least because of all the creative souls that I’ve met there. I studied under the guidance of Jonathan Solter, Amanda Sage, Li Lian, Daniel Mirante, Kevin Campeau and Autumn Skye Morrison. I couldn't be more grateful for having had such amazing, inspiring teachers. 

 

 

We are all dreaming and creating collectively, our visions inspire each other and are part of each other.

 

I believe that art

leaves lasting impressions on people that can influence their perception

and way of thinking.

My vision is that people find love

and connection through the art

that can change their life

in a positive way.

Through my paintings,

I hope to inspire people to look deeply into their hearts,

to find their own passion and to rediscover the world of magic and wonder that is all around us and that weaves through all things.
