My recent hometown of Munich, where I lived from 2007-2012, features heavily in my recent work. Its varied urban spaces draw me in and challenge me. From the little huts of the Christmas markets to the tents of Oktoberfest, Munich is a city rich with visual inspiration. You’ll find a lot of women in dirndls (traditional Bavarian dresses) in my work, too.
