Born in Stuttgart, Germany in 1961, living in Nuremberg from 1965 to 2000, between 1980 and 1991 Studies in Physics, Philosophie, Psychologie and Art History at the Friedrich -Alexander -
University in Erlangen.
Interested in painting since I could hold a pen I started things in earnest in the seventies, picking up knowledge from other artists, during a stretch as a guest student at the Nuremberg Academy of
fine Arts and various holiday classes. So I am more or less an autodidactic painter.
Since 1984 exhibitions locally and internationally.
Being interested in landscape painting I was inspired by traveling in the USA, Mexico, Guatemala, Morocco, Nepal, India, Australia, Scotland, Spain, Italy, France, Turkey, Norway.
Since 1987 I am teaching classes privately, in evening schools, and for the german producer of artist colors, Schmincke Company
Since 2001 I wrote various books about painting and drawing, for the publishers "Englisch-Verlag", Wiesbaden and "Toppverlag", Stuttgart in Germany
Since 2000 I am living and working in a former gothic monastery in Birkenfeld near Neustadt/Aisch
