I was born and raised in Salzburg, Austria. Already during my childhood and youth I felt the desire for artistic work and finally got inspired by a trip to Australia where I started painting.

On a six months journey to Cape Town a few years later, I found my passion for wildlife and chose this scenery for my works. During this period my first exhibitions followed.



he urge for new inspiration brought me in 2000 to the Dutch metropolis Amsterdam where international artists inspired me. Since than I exhibited internationally like Austria, Germany, The Netherlands, Switzerland, France, United States and many more. With pride I sees myself autodidact and being honored to have received so many certifications.
