„I am a traditional trained basketmaker and learned the fundations of my craft at the German basketry school in Lichtenfels. Since then I increased my knowledge and repertoire by learning with other crafts and fellow craftsman. I specialized in willow skein work. This very time consuming techniques is my absolute weaving passion. I work for designers, museums and currently I am developing my own collection. Next to that I like to teach basketry not only willow skein work but also other techniques and materials.
