Who are you? What do you do?

Delicate, intimate, fragmented

What makes you different?

I am a very organized person and have to write everything down. All has to be in order for me to feel comfortable. Itʼs only when I paint, that I can let go and produce a real mess.

When did you decide to become an artist?

The first time I set foot in an art school. The vibe just got me.

What do you find most fascinating about the creative?

Standing in front of an empty canvas. Nothing is impossible.

A few words about your favourite creation?

I donʼt really have a favourite. Each painting is a new challenge. One leads to the other.

Someone elseʼs work that inspired or inspires you…

Jorinde Voigt, Richard Tuttle, Shana Moulton, Georgiana Houghton, Rose Wylie, Karla Black… just to name a few.

A new project coming up or an ide, you want to work on?

Always more painting, obviously. Maybe some drawings. Hopefully being able to work more space-related.

Finish the sentence „More important than my career is…“

… walking and painting. Painting and walking.

2018: Where are we going?

L.A. in the summer. Then hopefully London again, maybe Berlin… I donʼt know yet.

When the going gets tough…

… a change in perspective helps. Being at the top of a high building. Everything looks so small and suddenly everything is less daunting. Or going on an extensive walk, not knowing where it is leading me.
