My artwork and me:

I draw since I can think (and I started very early with it!). In kindergarten everyone thought my mother would draw the pictures I showed them. Because a small child canīt draw pictures like this. But i could and have never stopped. During my school time I discovered my preference for comics and fantasy art. Especially the artwork of Wendy Pini, producer of the comic "Elfquest" has influenced my style. I invented my own figures and wrote stories about them. Parts of the story you can find here. In my artwork I prefer to draw subjects or figures you canīt photograph, but only exist in your imagination. So I like to draw for people which have a clear imagination of a motive, but canīt draw for them selves.

To escape the grey everyday life (Itīs not really grey) and for inspiration I like to read fantasy books (Terry Pratchett, Tollkien, Stephen King, etc.). I like movies which impresses my with their pictures and entertain my with an intelligent script. (Sleepy Hollow, Dark City, Lord of the Rings, etc.). Also I like all kind of animals and the whole nature; Iīm interested in everything which walks, flies or swims.

Here you can find photos of my daughter, my animals and of the Wadfests.
