the perfect fit for your home?
◆ What individual steps are required?
◆ What additional specialists and artists are needed?
◆ Who is responsible for the entire project manage-
ment as central interface to all involved artisans?

Questions like these and many more, we will discuss in a first consultation – without any obligations for you.
This first step of individual advice and a coordinated project strategy always is the indispensable basis for a successful completion of my work. Preparation is everything!
Below are some examples of the different techniques that I will blend to achieve any fascinating and unique wall design.
With leaf gold and other precious metals, I will add unimagined effects to your walls. In small batches and with special bonding agents the razor-thin gold, silver, platinum or palladium is affixed to the primed wall. Whether applied on large areas or just in petite and delicate patterns: a really elaborate and time-consuming technique, that in former times was solely reserved for the monarchs.
And you will be surprised how this special technique will transform any old furniture into a classy, one-of-a-kind eye-catcher. I will be more than happy to help you acquire the perfect antique furniture on the traditional flea-markets in Paris, Brussels and London.
For patination, the wall is first coated with a layer of paint or glaze and then the surface is further processed with different techniques (scraping, brushing, polishing, stamping, sponging, etc.).
The origins of the stucco technique lie far back in ancient times, when a smooth but textured surface was regarded as the highest technical perfection of wall design.
The appropriate preparation of the wall starts with a complex priming process and the basic filling. Then the decoration layers are applied with frequent spatula strokes using a small putty knife. The strokes have to be applied cheek by jowl and criss-cross before being smoothed. By applying several superimposed layers I will create the typical and unique surface structure of Stucco Antico.
The creative spark for my murals originated from my children: Sometime my youngest daughter brought up the question, why I could not paint her room – and immediately I came up with the vision of custom-painted designs for children: colorful scenes from the jungle, the underwater world, from the African veldt, from the Caribbean, from a summer meadow full of blossoms and butterflies, and, and, and. Meanwhile, even a princess room has joined those first ideas.
I frequently use the template technique, some is mapped to the type of old artists on the wall and then the color is applied hands-free. On special request, I will design your own custom-made, non-woven wallpaper in my workshop, which then will be glued to the walls of your home.
7Star panels are a genious invention of the wallcover manufacturer Welter in Berlin. They are made in time-consuming manual work using the finest porcelain powder and then coated with various materials and precious metals.
