Driven by curiosity and passion, I am working as a professional fine art researcher and author based in London. As an independent art historian M.A., I am taking commissions for research projects, monographs, reviews, academic, curatorial and educational texts. In addition to having a strong interest in modern and contemporary art, film and photography, I focus on figurative post-war painting. I am particularly fascinated by artists’ working methods, complex narratives and rich visuals.
Since graduating from the University of Cologne, I have been focusing on the work of Francis Bacon. I have been researching and publishing for The Estate of Francis Bacon, most notably on the Francis Bacon Studio Archive at The Hugh Lane Gallery in Dublin, the Francis Bacon MB Art Foundation in Monaco and The John Deakin Archive. I submitted my PhD thesis ‘On the Trail of Francis Bacon – Painting from Photography’ for examination by the University of Cologne in April 2019.
