I am a German multidisciplinary artist (*1992, Essen) based in London working with a range of formats and materials.
Drawing from self-fiction and autotheory, I use my art as a medium to digest life, unpack relational behaviours and introspective patterns. Poetic humour weaves through vibrant, eclectic installations where memories and future projections are reflected through a range of painting styles. My experiences are dissected, inspected and reassembled in the ultimate attempt to demystify them and dismantle internalised narratives around womanhood and fairy tale romance. Such a surgical and emotional process resolves in artworks which reflect rituals of closure initiated by the smell of incense or the sound of rippling oysters. It’s in the tension between keeping and letting go that catharsis finally manifests, and inner transformation occurs.
I did a BA in Visual Communication at the Academy of Fine Art Maastricht, Netherlands, where I focused on film and graduated with distinction in 2016. Afterwards, I navigated my way towards contemporary art as art-mediator for the Boros Collection Berlin while establishing my artistic practice. Since 2020 I am based in London, where I received a graduate diploma in Fine Art at Chelsea College of Art with distinction. In July 2023 I graduated with distinction from a Master of Fine Art from Central Saint Martins, for which I have been awarded the Mona Hatoum Foundation scholarship. Currently I have a studio with the Bomb Factory Art Foundation, London.
I am also the Co-Founder of The Filthy Fox Auction Club, featuring promising art graduates from London's art colleges to help them sustain their early careers. In July 2022 The Filthy Fox Auction Club was awarded as 'Runner Up' from the UAL Creative Enterprise Award. The first successful auction took place in November 2022 in East London, featuring 14 artists from Camberwell, Chelsea, Central Saint Martins, Goldsmiths, Slade and the Royal College of Art.
