I was born in Frankfurt/Main in 1972. I grew up in a small town near Wiesbaden, where I finished highschool in 1992. In 1993 I started to study at the FH Trier. In 1996, my first daughter was born. I got my diploma in fashion design in 1998. After that, I collected some first work experience in the qualitydepartment of a textile trading company in Aachen. In the following years I focused on my family, painted sometimes, took part in an exhibition and was a creative instructor for my three wonderful kids. I am married and live in Aachen.
