Life for me is about having fun and to discover what brings you the most joy!

For me this is definitely drawing people. Drawing feels like a meditation, and being in the moment together with another person always makes it a unique experience.

About six years ago I wanted to learn to quickly draw people by observation. For this goal I chose to start sketching with fineliner.

After a while I was more confident and started drawing on a watercolour paper sketchbook. Now I mostly draw digitally on my iPad and feel that I have achieved my goal to draw people in a short amount of time.

Drawing people always is an adventure: who will I meet next, in what kind of environment and how will the drawing work out?

Last year I have made about 800 drawings and discovered a few themes of which a small selection is presented on this website.
