I am a German-born sculptor and installation artist with a Masters degree in art and physical education from University of Leipzig, and an MFA in sculpture from Ohio State University. I have lived and worked as an artist in the United States since 2000 and have taught at numerous art schools in New York City over the past 10 years, including Pratt Institute, School of Visual Arts and at various public elementary school for Studio in a School.

My vivid multimedia assemblages and works on paper in solo exhibitions have received critical recognition from a number of publications including Artforum, Sculpture, Brooklyn Rail, Frankfurter Allgemeine and Juliet. In 2009 I was commissioned to create a permanent installation for the SØR Rusche Collection in Berlin and received the Pollock-Krasner Foundation Award in 2010. I have shown extensively in over forty exhibitions throughout the United States and Germany. Notable venues include: Islip Art Museum (East Islip, NY), The Sculpture Center (Cleveland, OH), Heidelberger Kunstverein (Heidelberg, Germany), Grounds for Sculpture (Hamilton, NJ), Michael Steinberg Gallery (New York, NY), Kasia Kay Art Projects (Chicago, IL), Galerie Schuster (Frankfurt, Germany), Farbraum at Radialsystem (Berlin, Germany) and Smack Mellon (Brooklyn, NY). This past summer I worked on my first site-specific and permanent outdoor installation, Toss-Up in the forest of Darmstadt at the Walldkunstpfad 2016 and exhibited a new installation at the Ladenburger Kunstverein in Germany.

My work is found in numerous private collections, and the Bezirksärztekammer (Karlsruhe, Germany).
