In her fine art photography project LICHTWERKE she combines her great passions – nature, photography and creativity – from early childhood, when she wandered throught the forest with her father‘s and grandfather‘s camera equipment and her sketch book. In her home workshop she lived her creativity day in and day out with various materials and techniques, such as painting and drawing, glass engraving and plaster modeling, drilling and hammering, sawing and sewing, printing and bookbinding – experimenting with everything by hand. She reuses all these materials, cameras and tools in her studio in Landsberg am Lech today – and lend wings to her creative roots.
Her work has been awarded numerous international prizes.
