About Me

I'm a 23 year old art student from Stuttgart, Germany. In July 2020 I graduated from the art university "Freie Kunstschule Stuttgart" with a diploma.
With my father being an artist and my mother being a photographer I grew up with a lot of artistic influence.  However, I first started taking photographs at the age of 12, taking my first step towards art. I started drawing at the age of 16 and regularly attended drawing courses at the art school in Filderstadt. Two years later I discovered my passion for painting. 
In 2019 I won the 3rd place of the drawing competition called "Die Kunst des Zeichnens (The Art of Drawing)".

On February 13, 2020 my first, own drawing teaching book "The Face" was published in Germany by the publisher frechverlag, known for the "TOPP"-creative books.
