I am currently located in Berlin, Germany.
I started now two years ago, some time after graduating university. I fell in love with the process of screen printing and wanted to keep exploring this technique. At the beginning I made only five bigger abstract art pieces but as around the same time I lost my life-long little cat friend, I also wanted to create some art in his memory. This is how I started with my cat and dog illustrations.
I love animals, nature and colour, so I find inspiration from everything really. Sometimes I would see a dog on the street with a funny face or my old cat doing funny things. Also just life situations that happen are a huge inspiration. I try and then visualize them.
I have a huge sketching book where I let my mind run wild with different topics. For example I would picture a giraffe and then try and find the face and the shape by sketching many times over. After this, I would choose one or two to scan and would edit these drawings on the computer. For screen printing the beginning of the process is similar however the technique is longer and more complex. For screen printing I enjoy choosing the colours and getting to do something with my hands. I thoroughly enjoy the process.
Thank You for saying this, I take it as a compliment. I love colour and like to bring more of it to one's life. I want to have it so on a grey winter day my prints will bring colour to it.
