Gemstones are the force that drives me in my creative work. On the one hand, it is the exploration of the materiality and the approach to the limits and secrets of the stones. On the other hand, it is the semiotic charge, meaning and the use of gemstones – especially of diamonds – in our society.
My playing hands are the tools for my ideas and thinking. Through them I feel and touch the surface and the outlines of the material. They are the medium, which connect my inner world with the outer world. They urge the mutual process of touching and grasping, changing my ideas and my perception.
From 2009 to 2012 I made my apprenticeship to goldsmith at staatliche Berufsfachschule für Glas und Schmuck in Kaufbeuren-Neugablonz, Germany.
Due to my passion for gemstones I studied Bachelor of Fine Arts at the University of Applied Sciences Trier, Dept. Gemstone and Jewellery in Idar-Oberstein, Germany. During that time I studied one semester abroad at Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology (RMIT) in Australia .
In July 2016 I received my Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree.
In 2018 I started my Master Studies at the University of Applied Sciences in Munich and graduated with a Master of Advanced Design in 2019.
Since September 2016 I have my own little atelier in Kempten (Bavaria), Germany. Come and pass by at my studio and have a look inside.
