Who's that woman?

Multifunctional Artist 

I was born in Slovakia and raised in Berlin, Germany. Currently I'm living in Hamburg, one of my favourite cities. However, I love travelling and also lived in the Netherlands and the UK for shorter periods of time.

In love with life long learning

As a creative head, namely a singer, voice over artist, multi-instrumentalist, painter, actress and sometimes poet (and I also once had great fun stage directing and writing a theatre piece):

I obviously love discovering new stuff. I admire the way different things, experiences and knowledges lead into a form of cross-inspiration. 

 

I've been painting (see my fine art bio & artist statement here) since my early childhood and started playing piano with 4 years of age. With 14 years I decided to start singing. Not that anybody knew about it - I made sure no one did, by practicing in the smallest and acoustically most isolated room in our family house. Nowadays that strategy obviously changed. But that maybe explains why I still love spending my time singing in old bunkers, studios or cabins, while the sun might be shining outside.... However, it took me about ten years before I started singing officially in a Band, directly after moving to Hamburg. 

"Art is the language that connects the world"

Since then, I sang and played in various bands of different styles such as Funk, Pop and my beloved Jazz which is one of my central influences (currently @SPIELWERcK).

Due to my experiences as a former scientist, I also have a big fable for experiments in music and arts in general. This also shows in my long term experience as a improvisation theatre actress and infuses my approach to music, painting, voice over and singing. I simply enjoy adapting to different situations and demands quickly. Or as I put it: Jumping into cold water is one of my favourite sports.

 

With all forms of art I enjoy the possibility of connecting and communicating with other people globally and I enjoy it to get inspired by biographical life stories and emotional experiences of others. Thus I founded the art project "from art to art".
