Artist Statement

I drew ever since I can imagine, but through my studies in architecture I learned to construct and engineer a drawing. A six months stay in Paris during my studies was a drastic moment in my development as a drawer, because I had the time to do whatever I wanted. I found two congenial friends and we explored the city together. I learned something very important there: always have a look at what other people do.

I have studied architecture in Siegen, Germany and Paris, France. In March of 2007 I moved to Stuttgart in order to take my first job as an architect. Last winter, I was an assistant teacher at the University of Stuttgart. I helped the students how to keep a sketchbook.

Drawing has become something fundamental to me — it carries satisfaction and happiness to me in my daily routine but also the loads of information behind a building.
