About me

From an early age I have been engaged in painting. Nevertheless, I first studied book science, German language and literature and art history at the Johannes Gutenberg University in Mainz (Magister 2012, doctorate 2017).


I was always active as an autodidact and parallel to working on my dissertation I started painting for the Gutenberg-Shop in Mainz. Since October 2017 I have been working both as secretary general of the International Gutenberg Society in Mainz and as a freelance artist.
