Born in Halle (Saale) in 1980, I studied at the academy for visual arts in Leipzig. Since 2003 I’ve been a free-lance illustrator and worked as art director, storymation designer, (key) background designer, matte painter and clean-up-artist. I love doing detailed coloured scenes of flora and fauna. I live in Halle (Saale) with my family.
More information about my work you could also find in the International Movie Database.
