The cinematic quality and extreme weather of the Mojave, Sonoran and Chihuahuan desert has inspired the collection Desert Diary. It often feels familiar, like a place you know, but have only seen in a movie. I have travelled these deserts for many years, and no road trip or landscape ever feel the same because of the constantly changing light and shapes of the desert. Driving towards the Mexican border the landscape becomes very sparse, minimalist, the weather and changing clouds transforming the views every minute. It has almost a meditative quality.
My background lies in architecture, having graduated with a BA in interior architecture, with further training including photography, typography, and graphic design. This has strongly influenced my work which fuses structure, space, texture and light. I was born in Hannover, Germany, but have lived in London for over 20 years.
My work is mainly photographic but includes also unique pieces that combine drawing, painting, and photography in collage work.
