How long have you been an artist? What is your specialty? Where do u find inspiration?
I started drawing at the end of 2014. I’m also since 3 years an artist.

I have no specialty at the moment. I’m still in my ‘testing phase’. I draw with different mediums and try different things to find my strength and learn from that.

Mostly in nature, but also in music, games and easily in everyday life.

Do you have a job in the art industry? If So, what’s one thing you don’t like about it? If no, where would your dream job be?
No not yet. But I follow my plans/dreams to become an artist in games industry.

Do you have a favorite Artist?
Of course. There are so many. Rossdraws, wlop, lighane or Waiji Choo to name just a few.

What is one accomplishment you’ve had in your life? Does not need to be art related.
Oh I think my life is really boring. I’m proud to got my Abitur (it’s the highest school grade you can get in Germany before going to university). My grades were sometimes not good enough to get this graduation but I never give up and in the end I got it.

Where do you see yourself in 5 years? 10 years? 20 years?
Hopefully in 5 years I’m almost finish with my game art studies.

In 10 years I want to work at and with a great game studio (like Guerrilla Games or Blizzard).

In 20 years I want to see myself in the same studio with more experience and great works done.

If you could meet and talk to any person in the world, dead or alive, who would it be?
There are two persons I ever want to met. First of all it’s Audrey Hepburn because she’s a great role model for me. And the second person would be Albert Einstein. I’m so fascinated by his theories and I wish I could discuss them with him personally.

How is one way you make money with your art?
I’m still in learning process. One day I want to sell my art. But not yet.

If you could go anywhere in the world where would it be and why?
That’s easy. Amsterdam. It’s my favorite city in world. Evertime I’m there I feel welcomed and home. It’s such a big city but it seems so little and chilled when you be there. It’s easily perfect for me.

What is your favorite brand of art supply? Whether it’s a brand of pencils or brand of camera or software
My favorite brand is Faber Castell. They make so good and quality but also pricy products. I really love the Polychromos since I started to draw colored pencil drawings. But the Prismacolor pencils are good as well. Hard to decide.

Any advice for young artists?
Still practicing. Good things need time to grow. And one of the impotant things ever – do it for your own! That’s important for everything in life.
