This is just a brief English excerpt of the most important information within this site, as the major part of the contents and its photos should be self-explaining. Anyway, please do not hesitate to contact me for any questions.
In February 2015 I was happy and lucky to find a studio outside of Munich at my favourite lake, where I can easily act out my creativity.
Apart from the fact, that you're always welcome, I installed official opening hours for visitors, too, which are usually:
This will allow you to come and look around spontaneously and thus perhaps complete your weekend planning and sightseeing tour around the lake by a side trip to my studio. You may also call me to fix an individual appointment.
Of course I'm much more often in the Studio, but during the week I need to be more flexible - depending on the working process of the corresponding piece I'm working at.
I thus set up an agenda, where you can find altered and "flexible" opening hours, too.
The studio itself is pretty easy to find as it’s situated at Starnberg’s main street, near the church square. From Starnberg’s main station S6, which stops directly at the lake, the studio can be reached by foot in 5 minutes only.
Generally speaking I do appreciate creating things with my own hands. Furthermore I like natural materials like leather and wooden objects. ... and I do love expressive colours! In combination with my passion for antiques it was a corollary to start up-cycling and pimping them up by making "New from Old". Even more because "old things with a lot of untold (hi)stories" often have an excellent quality which must be kept - all the more because we live in a throwaway society.
By the way, not to be mixed up with this excessively used idiom "shabby chic" - because my works are "chic" but not "shabby" at all!
In respect to my paintings I must say that I have been painting since I could grasp a pencil. As a child I was keen on painting animals, as a grown up I preferred the human species, as you will unambiguously recognise under my label ArtBoxMunich.
I will always show the latest works on this website and you will also have the chance to see at least some of them "live" at the Starnberg Studio.
As some kind of continuation of my painted "Body Landscapes", I love to remodel vintage display dummies, which can either be used, e.g. as a wardrobe, or just placed as a decorative object of art. In- and outdoor.
Last but not least... there is my caricatures!
In comparison to my paintings, my passion for drawing stick figures is still rather young. It was born by pure chance while writing down true stories in a - hopefully - funny way. In order to underline or to strengthen my creative writing, I simply created stick figures.
I hope you'll have as much fun watching them as I have while painting them.
Of course I offer contract work over the whole spectrum - private & for business. And if you want to get to know, how I'm doing things... just book an individual creative or DIY-workshop!
