Born 1948 in Magdeburg the artist started observing and drawing pets and animals as a child.
Since 1979 he has been a freelance artist. At first he worked as an illustrator, drawing animal illustrations detailed from nature. At the same time he developed his own style adding the naturalistic elements and detailed drawing from the illustrator side to his own humoristic elements.
No artist captures the liveliness and playfullness of kittens, puppies and „their friends“ with more verve and wit like him. His "cuddly kittens" are popular on porcelain and deco items all over the world.
