Artist Statement I was born in Hamburg, Germany. Since 1983 I have lived in Australia, partly in Maroochydore in Queensland and partly in Hobart in Tasmania.

I have worked as a digital artist since the turn of the millennium, after I had realized, with the acquisition of ‘Artlantis’, the immense art potential of some software. I started then to create images of a distinct character using the new and unique digital medium. This marked a turning point in my career, away from architecture and back to art where I had started from, originally.

Before, I was working as an architectural consultant, first in Hanover, Germany, then in Hobart, Australia.

I studied sculpture with Kurt Lehmann and painting with Kurt Sohns at Hanover University as well as architecture with Friedrich Spengelin and Gerhard Graupner.

During my time in Hanover, I co-founded the “Werbezentrale für Totalkunst und Banalismus” in conjunction with concept artist Timm Ulrichs.

I was married twice. I have 3 grown-up children, a son who works as a graphic designer in Melbourne, my older daughter works as an architect in Brisbane and my younger daughter as a furniture designer and business woman in Hobart.
