Every time I went to the zoo with my father, we had to visit the crocodiles. Looking down from a small bridge, I could take a look to the back of the reptiles, frightening and fascinated at the same time. They nearly did not move and their mouth were wide open. Although getting goose bumps, I felt very close to my friends. 

When these four crocodiles appeared in my drawing, I remembered the zoo, my father and the feelings accompanying my crocodile-adventures. They got a very friendly expression now.  


Sometimes a drawing demands just a few lines. Stopping the drawing process in the right moment is a big challenge. I like my mosquito, every line makes sense and seems to be at the right place.

I like the idea just using a pencil and a sheet of paper. A simple setting like that opens a lot of space for spontaneous interactions with my creativity. I don´t have to take care of complicated materials and preparations. Just sitting down and let it flow, everywhere, at any moment when i feel inspired.

Video Production: Breath Of Crisis

Wonderful collaboration with artists from Urhof20, an art center in Grünbach/Schneeberg. Improvisation is our main interest, usually performing live. In this case I got the video and created the music watching Bea´s performance on the screen, improvising and recording the track with no overdubs, similar to a live situation.
