When i was 9 I took a spot in the top three of the local bank’s children art comp’ for the third year in a row. At 13 I drew band logos onto my school bag and wanted to become a typographer, three years later I did a work experience with a sign writer. In 2003 I graduated with a Master in Design from Bauhaus University Weimar and shortly after moved from Germany to Melbourne where I was immediately infected by the local stencil fever. Since then I have exhibited my art around Australia, Europe, America and Asia and have been published in a number of international and national magazines, books etc.
Besides being a practising artist I have also poked my nose into the world of art and event management. In 2004 I initiated the Melbourne Stencil Festival and co-directed the highly successful event until 2007 (at that point it had become a touring show with festivals in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Perth and in several locations in regional Victoria). During that time I also organised numerous other street art exhibitions and educational programs around Victoria.
After a 2 year stint in the corporate graphic design world I went on to freelance in 2009. Art, Design and Family are filling my life now … what more would you want?!

It’s been a bit more than a year since I signed up to rb and uploaded my first designs and I am quite surprised with the results. Even though I haven’t been adding a hell lot of designs and haven’t done any monster promotion for my stuff on here I still have a pretty constant number of sales … more than 50 shirts with my designs and artworks where shipped into various corn…
pretty cool. i didn’t expect to receive a payment from RB in the first couple of months, but hey, about a dozen people chose to buy one of my shirts in my first 4 weeks on this site — I am stoked! Thanks to everyone who browsed my works and a special thanks to the lucky folks that are running around in my shirts now. You rock! / I hope I find some time very soon to add some new design…
wow, i only signed up a week ago and already had a couple of sales and now my new submission is the first featured image on the homepage … sicko! / Thanks to everyone who stopped by my designs and left comments, bought, favored or just looked!
I finally uploaded my first few shirt designs this weekend … let’s see how this goes. / For now I will stick to shirts only, but plan to also make a few prints available in the future.
