In her own words “As a child, I loved to draw and liked to be creative. I almost was born with a pencil in my hand. I knew I wanted to do something related to arts. I have graduated from Graphic Design in Darmstadt, Germany and then worked for different advertising agencies in Germany, USA and Switzerland. I stopped working in agencies after becoming a mother, and after a short time of being self-employed, I decided to quit work until my children grew older. Because of my children (4 and 6 years old) I can go through childhood again and I can enjoy the world of fantasy and fairy tails. I like to look at children’s books and let them inspire me. “Where the wild things are”, from Maurice Sendak is a favourite book of all of us. Through the children books, I rediscovered the love to illustration again. As a professional graphic art designer, I often had to make compromises for the clients. There were a lot of rules in visual communication and I often felt that I could not express my whole creativity. Now I enjoy creating art that does not explain itself from the beginning. My images have a dreamlike and surreal quality. They speak from inner feelings which we often hide in our daily life. My inspirations are fantasy, children stories, medieval, Jugendstil, folklore and surrealism. I am inspired by the work of Nicoletta Ceccoli, Kelly Rae Roberts, Sabrina Ward Harrison, Olaf Hajek, Maggie Taylor, Natalie Shau, Colette Calascione and Nazario Graziano.
