I was born and raised in Salzburg, Austria. Already during my childhood and youth I felt the desire for artistic works 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.

The urge for new inspiration brought me in 2000 to the Dutch metropolis Amsterdam where international artists inspired me.

Since than I exhibited internationally for example Austria, The Netherlands, France and United States.

With pride I sees myself autodidact and being honored to have received so many certifications.
