I love comics and cartoons, my biggest skills are portraying and drawing caricatures, humans are my subject. My great abilities are quick wit and intuitive recognition. In the course of my artistic career I have developed a vast variety of styles depending on specific tasks, my professional work is characterized by permanent development. My artistic spectrum includes live art at various events, caricatures, portraits, illustrations, development of logos, cartoon and comicbook art as well as aquarell, oil and mixed techniques.
A big highlight in my artistic career was my participation in the production of the partly animated documentary “The 5 Powers”, including a 48-page comicbook, which tells the story of Thich Nhat Hanh, Sister Chan Khong und Alfred Hassler and addresses Vitnam War, Buddhism and non violent action.
In my free time I read a lot, my interests are all-embracing and I am singing and playing harp (harmonica) with my band Fuzzy Riot.
