Grown up in an artist family, I deeply thank my father for introducing art, the fascinating and very sensitive media of crystal and glass as well the wonderful and inspiring nature to me over the years.
As far as I can think back my passion for being creative always was present and pathbreaking throughout my personal phases of development.
All different experiences continuously influenced me on a positive way and allowed me to breaking ground as second generation artist. Creating outstanding one of a kind works of art using the most interesting, sensitive and magical material is challenging as well fulfilling at the same time. I love what I do and I never stop moving on...that's what passion is about.
