About me

I was born and grew up in Gelsenkirchen. I also went to school there and learned the job of a locksmith. In addition to my work, I continuously continued my education in the evenings, acquired my general university entrance qualification and, among other things, completed a university degree in computer science.

After completing my professional career, I continue to operate my websites and I like to follow the innovations in web development and technology. This also includes digital photography, image processing and filming. My great passion is watercolor painting and drawing. I started drawing in 2015 and later I built my watercolor painting on it. Today I like to paint outdoors, but also at home. For several years I have been attending watercolor workshops on a regular basis. I also go on painting trips. Read a lot of books about watercolor painting and watch instructional films and documentaries.

I have been living in a small village that belongs to the Obernholz community for over 25 years. This region is called Isenhagener Land for historical reasons and is located in the Südheide. Gifhorn, Celle and Lüneburg are not far away. It’s a beautiful area that invites you to paint. Here and there there are still beautiful heathlands with sheep, shepherds and tourist guides. I use the heather motifs in Bad Bodenteich, at the Heiligen Hain near Wahrenholz, and especially in the area around Hermannsburg in the district of Celle, for my watercolor paintings.
