As a trained cabinet maker and freelance sculptor, I create contemporary wood art – works with a modern appeal and clear lines in traditional craftsmanship.
I deliberately choose wood with imperfections, discolourations, knots and cracks to emphasize the vibrant, organic qualities that evoke positive visual and haptic sensations in the viewer.
Sculpture and contemporary art are a special category in my creative field. And of course wood with its profound character is my starting point.
When interacting with this natural product, I take what is available and worth preserving and combine it with a network of emotional ideas, thoughts and decisions to create a very unique composition. A chorus of nuances, tones, movements and forms, an interplay of opposites – I am constantly on the lookout for that special something, intuitively striving for an abstract depth and trying to understand what lies beyond our observable reality.

Please get through to me by email if you have any questions:
I was born in 1973 in Bonn, but I grew up in South Africa up to the age of 16 and then moved back to Germany.
After graduating from high school, I studied art history, but I longed for creative, practical work and so I gave up my studies to do an apprenticeship as a cabinet maker. I spent a few years in upscale furniture construction before I started focussing on sculpture. Here I found the arena in which I could be truly creative.
Since then I have been working in a wide variety of areas in my studio in Königswinter, with a material that, despite all the achievements of our modern age, remains unrivalled.
About 3-4 times a year I write a really short newsletter, with some information about new works, exhibitions or other current events.
