In my Illustrations I want to manifest the wild spirit of a women. By trying to fit in our society I feel we lost our wild femininity and I am on a journey to find it again.
Skating and surfing are still man-dominated sports.
When I see a woman on her board, I forget the physical intensity behind her movements.
We have the ability to transform an intense sport into a beautiful dance.
In my illustrations I am expressing this softness, this feminine touch and this positive emotion.
I want to empower more woman to get on their boards and just have fun.
As I am originally from south Germany, far away from the ocean, my art is all about the magic I am experiencing now on the coast of Algarve. Inspired by the beauty of nature, surf-culture and Portuguese architecture, I try to catch the spirit of a life on the beach in this illustrations.
Traveling to Venezuela was the craziest trip I made so far. On one hand a country of stunning beauty with its virgin like Landscapes, on the other hand a nation led by corruption and violence, where you have to be aware of your sourounding at any time.
A country with so much potential, but unable to fulfill, blocked by the political leadership.
My Illustrations visualize the capital Caracas, the paradise Islands of Los Roques and the amazon forest with its Tabletop mountains. The many little details create the impression of chaos, but the very graphical and clean style organizes the images and shows the contrast that I felt visiting Venezuela.
