About me

For me, the greatest reward is a happy, inspired student.

I am a trained graphic designer. I have also been working as a jewelry designer with polymer clay since 2003. I am a co-founder of the German polymer clay group Polyclaykunst.de and a member of several international polymer clay guilds. Since 2007 I have made a name for myself as a polymer clay teacher and give privately organized workshops throughout Europe and the USA. I have also written two books on the subject.

As a graphic designer, I have in-depth knowledge of form, color, and composition. In my work with polymer clay, I always try to emphasize the unique qualities of this artistic medium through good design and flawless craftsmanship. Curious and with open eyes, I walk through the world, always looking for inspiration. Interesting shapes, color combinations, and patterns awaken my creativity. It can be anything – architecture, nature, paintings, or even just a visit to the hardware store. Sometimes I even get new ideas when I’m tidying up my workshop.

Teaching has become very important to me in recent years. Interacting with creative people is very inspiring for me – I never leave a course without having learned something myself.
