Thanks for taking a look at my porfolio. I’m an award-winning 28-year-old illustrator living in Germany. My goal is to create art that transports mood, emotion and atmosphere to the viewer. Art is more than a compilation of technical skills, it’s a path. Often it’s a rough one for us creatives. But the journey – wherever it leads- is well worth it.

In 2013, I received my Bachelor’s degree in Game Design from Mediadesign Hochschule in Düsseldorf. After successfully completing my internship, I accepted a full-time position working on Kaasa health’s lead title, „Meister Cody – Talasia“. You can see a sample of the child-friendly (age 7-10) backgrounds, characters and items in my portfolio.

I'm now working as a fulltime freelancer for different companys and projects, doing concept art, graphic design work, logo design and illustrations. My dream is to become an illustrator for Magic: The Gathering.
