I studied philosophy in France and visual communication at Weißensee academy of art Berlin.
I am currently working as a graphic artist, grafic novels author and art director at the Berlin-based start-up Yunel.
Since 2017 Honour as “Meisterschülerin” by Professor Nanne Meyer.
What I love most, as an artist, is watching and recording human relationships.
In my books, I show characters who share very different experiences and in so doing, become quite contented. It’s about man and woman meeting, two persons driven by difficulties and ease, struggle and harmony, sometimes close, sometimes apart, with growing or fading agreement.
Everyday situations conceal existential questions. My stories, with drawing and dialogue, claim to link depth and superficialities, to express the complexity of life with a new language. I look for treasures in seemingly innocent situations, and try to sharpen an awareness of the comical, the profound, the shocking, which are within and all around us.
The most essential is not always where one expects it: therefore, stories with different levels of meaning arise; these can make us laugh as well as think, they can promote self awareness and the comfort of knowing that, after all, a way can be found even in confusion. Chaos, tedium, frustration, lightness, cheerfulness, suffering, perplexity and joy alternate not altogether unpredictably…
Depicting this can entertain, soothe, and help our understanding.
