My career began with my carpentry apprenticeship. I soon became aware of the craft’s restrictions, which brought me to the arts. I studied at the Alanus-Hochschule in Alfter, and graduated with a diploma in stonemasonry in 1991. Since then I have been working as a self employed artist. I collect things, weld, work with wood, art, and everyday objects – aiming to lighten the weight of the material by creating a fluid line.
