Bio

I currently focus on fine art photography – on still lives portraying moments of daily life. I am interested in all phenomena of light and how light transforms the seemingly obvious into a new reality – thus creating the magic of the image.

 

I live and works in Germany now, after years of study, work and travel internationally. I moved from North America to Mexico and Europe, focusing initially on landscape and street photography. I lived in Korea for some years, crossed Asia, with an eye on Korea, Nepal, Japan, China, Vietnam and Mongolia.

 

Since 2001, I work intensely on photography. Since then, I had numerous exhibitions in Germany and abroad. I attended master courses with Josef Schulz, Kristin Dittrich, Sonja Braas and JC Bourcat.

 

I have successfully contributed to many art and photography prizes and become Px3 bronze winner (2015), 3. Prize winner of the Alzey-Worms Art prize in 2016, offered by the municipal gallery. I turned finalist eg. at Premio Arte Laguna (2015), Premio Celeste (2015), Premio Lynx, The Julia Cameron Gala Award, the ARTIG Art prize offered by the art association in Kempten (2016) and the South West German Art Prize (2018).  I gained a Dotart honorable mention in 2015 (street), a Sipa first selection 2016 and a shortlisting at Premio Celeste in 2017. I exhibit in galleries, art associations and festivals regularly.
