If you are looking for my resume or portfolio, please go to helios-designs.com.
Design is my passion. I have been drawing, painting, and sculpting since I can remember. After I had finished school, I started an internship at the Meissen Porcelain Manufactury (which sounds much like an assembly line job, but it’s far from that). There I learned the craft of drawing and painting of what you see in nature (composition was part of it). The first year was drawing/painting only, five days a week, eight hours per day. Even though it took me a long time to find a looser style after that, I still consider that first year great schooling and I am happy I got it. It helps me with sketching and drawing design ideas and drafts in my daily work, even though most of the designing I am doing on the computer.
I was born in Pirna, Germany (that’s near Dresden in the eastern part), and moved to the US in 2002. Now I live in Kirkland, just outside of Seattle with my little daughter (born in 2004), and enjoy it very much. If you are German and new in the area, drop me a line, and I can probably help you get connected.
My second passion (other than design) are horses. I own a Trakehner Arabian mare, and love to be out in nature and around horses. They can teach us so much. Feel the same way? Please email me, I would love to hear from you!
