meet the artist


I was born and raised in good old Germany and studied Communications and Political Science at the Ludwig Maximilian University in Munich. I fell in love with photography on a windy beach on the enchanted Isola d'Elba in Italy many moons ago. I love to travel and caught the Aloha spirit for life when I lived on the island of Maui, Hawai'i for six years. I swam with the wild dolphins in La Perouse Bay and lost my heart to the beauty of Aotearoa, the land of the long white cloud. I am a coffee snob since I was introduced to cappuccino in Milano back in the days where there was no good coffee to be found anywhere else and delight over street food in faraway countries and at home. I am a cat mom who loves dogs and all animals just the same. I capture the poetry of life with my camera, I love the ocean, the beauty of nature and the incredible light that surrounds me is a constant inspiration for my photographic work. To me photography is about being in the moment and going beyond what the eye can see. I believe that Aloha always wins and not a day goes by without thinking of Hawai'i.

Now I am based in Santa Barbara, California. I travel worldwide and also have a home base in Maui. Thank you so much for stopping by. If you like to get in touch for more information just send me a note. I'd love to hear from you.

With Aloha,
