Fluid (13" x 11", 2018)

So many people are drawn to the ocean—and I am one of them. Yet I haven’t always felt that way. Growing up in the southern part of Germany, my home country, I had always been convinced that mountains, forests and fields were the most fulfilling places in the world.

Ever since I began living close to the ocean, things changed. While I wouldn’t go so far as to say it’s better than mountains, forests and fields, the ocean is something I had clearly been subconsciously missing.

The ocean is a connector. It connects countries and continents. It connects human beings. It’s the place we all originated from and it’s where life on this planet began.
