My art books “Der Sandmann” from 2017 (inspired by E.T.A. Hoffmanns wicked story) require a lot of work before they are sold.
Each copy is partly printed, partly handmade. Limited edition of 150.

Here’s an insight on how the physical production of a copy looks like.
Personal photography: an artbook about lovers.
Self portaiture and poems.
During the last 4 years my partner allowed me to include him in my self portraiture, which lead to a variety of psychedelic and cinematatic portraits illustrating ‘us’ in an eerie, romantic and sometimes surreal manner.
Johannes (Hänsel) & Annegret (Gretel) are getting married and asked me to create a couple portrait for their wedding invitation.
As their nicknames suggest, we reenacted the fantasy movie“Hansel & Gretel” (2013), : two siblings make witch-hunting their glorious (and very effective) profession. Whatever dark forces await them, together, they are ready for battle (and their wedding)!
Detailed self portraits celebrate the spirit of Christmas: Alice in Wonderland meets the Nutcracker. (A fictional family portrait)
This year, I felt the heartbreaking urge to drown myself in a kitschy fairytale-and-all-cliche christmas mood: heavy red-golden brokat ornaments, oceans of candles and my favorite christmas fairytales… to stand my ground (again).
The road to happiness is bumpy, but I built myself a rocket and am now aiming for the lucky star!
I gave up my waiting spot in the ‘how can I make it happen?’ help desk line.
Since 2011 I’ve been busy with studying, internships in advertising agencies and in the film set production sector. I traveled a lot through European cities and soaked myself with culture in Berlin. Developed my portfolio every waking second.
I went through heaven and hell, a lot of times. For years I felt like I can’t accomplish anything and like I can’t belong to anyone (creatively speaking). Until I stumbled upon the right mentors to establish my visual voice.
Point is: you can make it, if you start to believe in yourself.
