She was born in Kyllburg but grew up in Bruderholz. She actually has a special relationship to Kyllburg, the Stadtpark Hahn and especially to the collegiate church.
The topic of land art fascinates her, especially with regard to environmental protection and nature conservation. As an all-round artist with special skills as a glass artist, she likes to use a wide variety of materials.

Head of Foam (2022)

My installation is a reference to global water pollution, which often takes the form of foam. PET bottles filled with drinking water often end up in the oceans as microplastics instead of being recycled.
With my work I hope that we will be able to keep our earth worth living in.

Head of Foam will be on view at Stiftskirche, Kreuzgang from June 27th.
