Textile Artist


The fiber arts allow me to work with topics that concern all of us as human beings in the 21 century, such as, "World Without Hunger", "Water is Life", consumerism, role of computers in communication, and so on. My aims are to face and transform issues, to bring awareness, and to hint at possible solutions. Textiles add warmth; they invite you in a friendly way to look - and think.



  • B.A. degree ("Textilgestaltung") from the University in Cologne, Germany

  • International exhibitions

  • Public art





As a painter, I react to the stimuli and visual impressions of my immediate environment: flowers on a table, light blazing through trees in a forest, city- and sky-scapes; all invites me to slow down, look, sketch, and share.



  • Studied three and a half years in Italy (Milan and Rome)

  • Works in private and public collections

  • Solo and group exhibitions

Published Author


Roman Horses (Cavalli Romani) is a really unique art book with original water colors and bilingual English-Italian text. The book is organized along the time lines of history; a wonderful, new way to explore the eternal city in search of horses in parks, fountains, columns, streets and more.
