Freelanced artist, based in Nürnberg, Germany, works everywhere
work crosses styles like fine art, theatre and facilitation/ projects:
Mask(making), staged photography, performing, workshop/ facilitation and artprojects
My view of the world and my approach to art has been fundamentally broadened by the concept of the Fool.
I first met Franki in 1998. Ever since I have found the space to free myself and to develop my passion for play. The theme of identity and roles was already present in my work as a fine artist; I discovered many parallels in Fool, with the concept of changing perspective.
My facilitation is based on Fool, which creates a special validating atmosphere.
I attended a number of Fool`s projects in Germany and abroad; and am particularly enjoying the contacts I made all over Europe.
Studied fine art; worked as an art teacher at (universities and high schools); Trainings in Fool, clown, physical theatre, masks in Germany and all over Europe. Trainings with the masktheatre Familie Flöz whose work with masks is a huge inspiration.
