I am a Berlin-based illustrator, designer and comics artist, using pencil, paper and a computer for my illustrations.

I studied visual communication and illustration in Berlin, New York City and Liverpool.

For the last couple of years, I have created illustrations for a wide range of international and German clients, primarily in the editorial and publishing field.
