My path has never been a straight one. I have come from the truth seeking world of humanities and social sciences – behavioral psychology – onto a more creative way of looking at the world by a way of design thinking. But I was still searching. Whilst pursuing my Bachelor of Arts in Design I simultaneously started participating in the Fine Arts class of painter Heike Kati Barath and elaborated my own ways of expression.
I am first and foremost a painter, but I experiment with different media in many of my projects. My main interest is the feeling of shame surrounding human intimacy and desire.
In my sessions I create an open space to experience oneself or shared intimacy without judgement. I open up ways of communication beyond photography or words, to express vulnerability, shame or lust in a fluid, creative and expressive flow of paintings.
