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.

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
