In my artistic work I focus on drawing, especially pen-and-ink drawing. Crucial to my painting is the connection of photography (objective reality) and the gestures of hand. In addition, I made several field projects using video and performance.

My interest in thescience of arts and philosophy strongly influenced my research into the field of cultural studies and art history (which focuses on the 20th century).

Als a lecturer in art education and textile design in Aachen and Cologne I combined artistic practice (drawing, experimental printing) with theoretic studies in art and design (aesthetics;theory of perception). Furthermore, I did several major projects in the fields of documentation and clothing (for example, a carnival project in Cologne).
