Artist´s website
I was my mother’s third daughter, my father’s fifth, so I did not get a lot of attention and they let me get on with own ideas. I made it into the Munich Academy of Fine Arts, and immediately started obsessively working.

Brilliant Disguise
That desire to take refuge in an imaginative space is the artist’s own. “I am not a light person,” she said. “I am best when I am camouflaged from myself.”
