Education and artistic development
2005 marked the year that I began to look for a new direction in my life after having spent the previous 25 years in employment and with family duties.
In September 2005 I started a 4-year study course at the
"Freie Akademie für Malerei", Dusseldorf
(Free Academy of Painting, Dusseldorf), which I successfully completed in December 2009 with the diplom.
2005/2006 Assistence in project

Alongside my studies of painting I have been concerning myself intensively with the medium of photography with emphasis on:
The examination of nature
