THANK YOU

_IMG_2526

And now I want to thank all the people, who helped and supported me this past year. The biggest thank you goes to my phantastic assistent Britt J. Heinker, who rocks my professional life since April. She gives me space to be able to work at the studio again instead of spending most of my time in front of the computer doing reserch and acquisitions – you are my hero! Also I thank Tobias Molitor for his always very sponatanious help, Ulrike Stolte for the artistic exchange, Michael Stoll for the nice work atmosphere and building my frames, Michael Behrens for the unspoken motivation, my parents for the always very positive position towards my art, Rob und Alex for their friendship… and of course all my collectors and buyers, who make it possible for me to actually live of my art – THANK YOU!
