BIO

I am an artistic designer who enjoys exploring the visual nature of being.

Born in East Germany I have always been creative at heart but when discouraged at an early age pursued a science career in biology instead.

Today my art and design work is infused with responses to personal experiences that make up my daily excistence. I enjoy creatively exploring meeting points between science and art and interpretating those in contemporary pattern designs.

I choose to peek closely at the small particles of life that often get overlooked both in pure nature and cultural juxtapositions viewing a patterned world in linear fragments rather than wholes and the palpable narrative between all of these . Expressing my responses in paint, pen and ink and stitch I use these artworks as starting points for developing surface pattern designs that merge current trend inspirations with personal expression. I enjoy explorative studio time and contemplative travel for inspiration.

I am married and we have a beautiful daughter who is homeschooled and thriving as a young artist herself. We share our time between the vibrant life of London and tranquil coastal inspiration in West Wales, where the mountains meet the sea.
