But I never forgot about the wilderness and fantastic landscape of the American South. So I became a dreamer and a painter. Being almost blind, I developped a passion for painting as clearly as possible.
After taking up studies on American History, Literature and Ethnology at the Ludwig-Maximilans-University in Munich, Germany, I wrote my M.A. thesis on "The female role in the American Western Film". Eruptions on my way led me then to the Southwest of the United States, Mexico, Japan and Spain. And back to Germany.
I currently live and work in Germany and the United States.
