This is me with the mask of a cat.

I started my art-education in Germany.
First in a School for Puppet- and Mask Theatre. After I went to Berlin to study scenography.
My Prof. Achim Freyer, was a former Brecht pupil.
Achim Freyer taught me that art can also be a survival kit. When one morning, a schoolfriend of mine entered the class very pale and wouldnt like to work, because his girlfriend had left him and he was feeling brokenhearded, the prof exclaimed: «Crisis, you have a crisis! You should use your crisis to paint!
