Born in 1981, grown up in Lenggenwil SG, I am a drawing enthusiast since my early childhood.
In 1989 my first steady comic character faced life, running through my yearly books I made for family and friends.
At the age of 13, I made the decision to become a professional illustrator and started to work on commission. I drew for multiple people, the newspaper of my gymnasium, teaching materials and then discovered animation. In 1999, my first exhibition took place.
2002-03, History of Art, University of Zürich; 03-04 Prep Course, Schule für Gestaltung St. Gallen; 04-05 Ethnology, University of Zürich; 05-06 Free Art, F+F Zürich; 06-10 Animation Design, HSLU Luzern.
Since my Bachelor of Arts in Animation Design, 2010, HSLU Luzern, I work as a freelancer in Illustration, Animation and Film. In 2011 I started to exhibit my Cardboard Art.
Feel free to have a look at some of my works and to get in touch.
