During the 2015 BlackSwanPrize for portraiture I offered a free portraiture lesson at the Linton&Kay Gallery in the CBD which was fully booked out. All participants enjoyed drawing from life, learning to measure, getting proportions right, achieving alikeness and sharing different techniques. It was a wonderful experience for all.

2007: DAAD Scholarship

The German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) is the largest funding organisation in the world supporting the international exchange of students and scholars.

I have been incredibly blessed with this one-year scholarship where I could come to Australia to develop my artistic style as well as undergoing further studies.


This was the final exhibition of the class of Professor Klaus Stuempel who lectured at University of Arts in Braunschweig for over 30 years. It was his farewell show with his last 5 students.


Team 404 put together an exhibition in the very large Zendai Museum in Shanghai. Some of us flew to China to set up the work and stay there for an excursion with Prof. John Armleder.


This was my final exhibition at the end of my Meisterschueler year. It was a big exhibition spread over several Gallery buildings. 12.000 Euro Scholarship was given away and the show was well received by the large audience.

Only a view students who graduate form DIPLOMA (5 year study in Germany) with distinction can be selected to continue studying on for another year, free of charge, focusing on the practical side of art only.

I truly enjoyed this special year under the supervision of Prof. Klaus Stuempel and Prof. John Armleder.
