I'm a freelance illustrator and artist in London.

Being a recent graduate, I'm now looking for work experience or internships in different sectors of the creative industry. Hoping to expand my knowledge and understanding of the variety of careers available, and find a role in which I fit in.

Having always had the wish to work in the creative sector, I left Germany at sixteen to pursue studying art and design in the UK.

While I studied Illustration at Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design, I discovered a love for printmaking, which is a technique I still work with and expand my knowledge about, since I enjoy working with my hands.

My work explores varieties of styles, which lead to outcomes with different medias and concepts. My work has recently been shown at the Hoxton Gallery, the London Illustration Fair and the Affordable Art Fair.

I've always had an interest production design, especially 2D props that include illustration or graphics as well as concept art.
