Artist Statement

I was born in 1962 in Dresden, in East Germany.

My early love for drawing expressed in textbooks cemented my rank as the darkest of black sheep throughout my school years.

Such was the discouragement that I gave it up together with school at the age of 16.

After coming to America in 1998 my artistic spirit was rekindled by many visits to the great collections here in NYC. I am an autodidact with no formal art training.

In my paintings I re-explore the Brooklyn neighborhoods I live in.
