Since I can remember myself, I always wanted to write books. I loved writing and wrote many stories, I even wrote for several magazines already as a child. The idea of being an author was something I always hoped would happen someday.

Through the years, my imaginary first book changed many times. From novels to make up how-tos, so many differentd ideas, but none of them was THE ONE.

4.5 years ago, my life changed. That change brought with such a creative burst and new confidence and all of a sudden, my first book came to life.

Because you can never have too many screens :D



This book contains my heart, raw and fragile, shaped into images and poetry.
And it's finally about to be released into the world!

Seeing the first proofs is so exciting!



To celebrate it's release, I will be having a solo exhibition at one of my favourite places on earth- the World Bodypainting Festival!

The prints for the exhibition arrived exactly on my birthday! I couldn't have asked for a better present than that.



Now, after all of these years of work (and several last weeks of complete stress madness), it's finally right around the corner, I can't even believe it!
