Important ingredients and inspirations for her art she finds listening to music. She is also influenced by her work for different fashion brands, for example Acne Studio.
The Scandinavian simplicity is an important characteristic of her personal style and work.

In the building of the former public bath of Nuremberg a small group of people organises music concerts in the summertime. In the courtyard you can watch bands from all around the world and have a nice evening. It’s a lovable subcultural location and it’s worth a visit.
The observatory is a fascinating place and offers very inspiring impressions. The building dates back to 1931 and it’s a special experience being there. Kind people with astronomical expertise explain the night sky and different astronomical phenomena. The visitors can look through the telescope and watch the universe. On certain dates they also offer the possibility to take pictures of the moon with a reflex camera.
The building was planned by the famous architect and artist Max Bill. Here you can find interesting, small exhibitions of contemporary artists and it’s also a nice place sitting outside in the café next to the river.
A former industrial area nowadays is a place for art and culture.
There you can find for example artist studios, exhibitions, concerts and cafés.
I like the place because of its special charm of imperfection and its experimental atmosphere.
