As a teenager, art became a serious issue for me. In my early 20s I took lessons with the Polish painter Anna Beynarowicz. But I had started painting before that and ever since. But studying art was out of the question for my family. So I decided on a profession in which I could also express myself and became an actress and presenter (find access to my official website HERE). Nevertheless I continued to paint. And at the beginning of the 2000s I exhibited my oil paintings. Because of my popularity, the press reported, I was invited to talk shows, also to paint live, etc. I didn't feel comfortable with that so I put down my rubber spatula - with which I painted exclusively. I founded design labels, got a patent for a reversible bag I designed, failed due to the insolvency of my investor, and returned to my painting almost two years ago. My style had changed, instead of using a rubber spatula with oil I now dab with acrylic to let my paintings grow in the time they need. Due to my own background as the daughter of a Cameroonian Minister of State and a German student councillor, I deal with socio-political issues.  Art and the confrontations through art are part of my life, even if I have kept this part secret from the public for almost 20 years.

Until now.
