CV

I was born in Munich in 1970 and grew up in Vorarlberg, Austria, from the age of two. I moved to Vienna at seventeen to study ceramic product design at the University of Applied Arts. During this time I was also a  guest-student, at the sculpture department, at the Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam and at the sculpture department at the University Of Applied Arts Vienna with Prof. Bertoni. In 1996, after finishing my studies at the University of Applied Arts Vienna, I went to London to study a Master In Fine Art at Goldsmiths University Of London, UK. I stayed in London for the following 20 years, working as an artist, portrait artist and architectural and interior photographer. In 2016 I moved back to Austria where I now live at the beautiful Lake of Constance. 



Work

My work is centered around notions of  gender roles and identity. Starting point is usually an image from popular culture or art history. For a long time I have laid my focus on portraiture, but also the notion of craft versus art is something that has astonished and fascinated me throughout my whole artistic life, and is reflected in my varied choice of materials and techniques. I like to create unique objects that, when grouped together, tell stories and influence each others meaning. Much like social interaction and role attribution in society.
