I lived all over the place
Starting off with my first three school years in
Tanzania, Africa. These were followed by a long stretch of time in Germany, including university in Berlin. Work related my family and I then moved to Washington DC/USA for three years, followed by 17 years in London, UK.
From 2006 onward I was a student at the Ceramic department of the Richmond Art School in Richmond upon Thames/ London. Our mentor was Emma Johnson.
In London I started off with throwing pots on the wheel but more and more liked the very thinness of porcelain and started making my own molds for slip casting, creating bowls, vases, cups , lamps and more.
I also love hand building chunky pots, having been influenced by my childhood in Africa, I guess.
Clay is such a versatile material with so many possibilities and I love to learn new skills by having taken and continuously will be taking classes with ceramicists I admire.
2012 I won 1st prize of St. Helena Foundation in Richmond upon Thames for my porcelain work and spent this prize money toward my first very own kiln .
2016 we moved back to Berlin, where for five years I work at the wonderful studio of ceramicist Maria Ortiz Gill, in creative Berlin Schöneberg.
Since October 2021 I share a beautiful studio in a truly nice and lively neighbourhood in Berlin Charlottenburg, Nehringstrasse 16 / also known as "Dankelmannkietz", with ceramic artist
