About me

Are you looking for striking art that inspires interest? Either I've already painted, drawn, printed or collaged it, or you can tell me what you're looking for and I can create a special work just for you. Let's talk.

Born in Vancouver, Canada (1966), I completed a two-year programme in Fine Arts in Vancouver, a BA in History and Germanic Studies in Victoria and an MA in Modern Western European and Modern East Asian History in Edmonton, Canada before travelling to Freiburg, Germany with a scholarship in 1996. I have lived in Freiburg, Hamburg and Oldenburg in Holstein, Germany since 1996. I work as a translator, primarily of art books and have been investing myself in my art again since 2013 through study and independent work.  I live in the lovely neighbourhood of Ottensen in Hamburg with my partner and in Oldenburg in Holstein with my daughter.
