About

I am an austrian 2D Animator, Illustrator and Picture Book Maker based in London. I find depth in the vast variety of people, opinions and cultures by using narrative as an essential component throughout my work, exploring it in its different forms and mediums. During my years of experimentation at Kingston, my preferred way of telling stories has fallen on animation and narrative illustration. Motivated by raising awareness for social issues, I often use observation to draw and later bring it to life by having a strong focus on design and characters.
