Ich bin freiberufliche Grafikdesignerin und Illustratorin und habe in Mainz Kommunikationsdesign studiert.
Neben meiner Arbeit für Agenturen, Unternehmen und Publikationen beschäftige ich mich mit dem Comic als visuellem Erzählmedium. Seit 2020 veröffentliche ich den Webcomic Life in Pixels über das Aufwachsen mit dem Internet. An der Hochschule Mainz unterrichte ich Zeichnen.
Besonders interessieren mich gesellschaftliche und kulturelle Themen, sowie Wissenschaft, Technologie und Medizin.

Als Ausgleich zu meiner Arbeit mache ich Kampfsport, und ich mag Naturspaziergänge.


I work as a freelance graphic designer and illustrator and studied communication design in Mainz.
My focus is on illustration, comics and visual storytelling. Since 2019 I teach drawing as a freelance lecturer at the University of Applied Sciences Mainz. I am also currently publishing a webcomic called Life in Pixels.
I’m especially interested in social and cultural topics, as well as science, technology and medicine.

As a balance to my work I do martial arts and I like long walks in nature.
