Why did you pick this picture?
I prefer to illustrate women who are inspiring, strong and creative. This woman is called Mogli. She is a singer and for me personally a big motivation, because she drived from Alaska to Mexiko in a schoolbus with her boyfriend and her dog. I like how she enjoys and lives her life. This portrait is always a reminder for me to remember what is important in life. As you all know, it is so easy to forget this in our everyday life. So I picked this picture because maybe it can be an inspiration and reminder for you, too.
Where did the idea come from?
The idea come from her and her boyfriends movie „Expidition Happiness“ about their journey from Alaska to Mexiko.
What does this art mean to you?
In general I want to collect the faces etc. of women who seems to be indipendent, strong, colorful, creative and beautiful in their own way. Sometimes it is just the look into the camera, sometimes it is a specific posture or the fashion style which is inpiring me to illustrate them. In a world full of sexism I want to create a place where women can be everything they want. My page wants to say: Do not ever let anybody say that you are too cute, stupid, ugly, young, old,…to do something. Just be yourself and everything else will fall into place! 🙂
What can you tell us about yourself?
I am 24 years old, living in Germany. In February I finished my Bachelor in Art in Socials Contexts (Art Therapy and Education). Now I am working with underaged unaccompanied refugees.
What more can you tell us about your art?
There is a secret I did not tell many persons so far: I am planning to do a world trip in one year and then I want to draw women I will meet during this expedition. For me it becomes more and more interesting to know a little bit about the woman behind a photography. So maybe I will ask them a specific question or something and take a photography to illustrate it later. But that are just ideas. So lets see what will happen in one year.
