ZWISCHEN KUNST UND KOMMERZ,
FREUDE UND SCHMERZ,
ERNSTHAFTIGKEIT UND SCHERZ.

»I love capturing moments that are special, banal, extraordinary or just random. I like to look around and remember situations that happen to me or others in everyday life and make them the theme of my work. My spices are irony, melancholy and a pinch of „don’t-take-yourself-too-seriously“.
I also deal with feminist and socio-political topics in my animations and paintings as it is important to me to depict issues that need to be discussed and changed for the better.«
