I decided at a young age that I wanted to spend my life working in the field of arts and antiques. I had acquired this sensibility from my father - himself a descendant of old German aristocratic lineage - and the wonderful interiors he had created for himself in our family homes.
My eyes were opened to the semi-abstract genius of cubism in sculpture in the year 2000, when I was an antiques dealer with a gallery off London’s Pimlico Road. The opportunity arose to acquire the studio and life works of Kim James – this sculptor was one of Britian’s last 'Ecole de Paris‘ artists working in the cubist vein and had exhibited alongside the likes of Moore, Frink and Hepworth throughout the late 50s and 60s. As the world antiques market changed so in turn my passions moved with the times and modernized, I came to the idea of creating portraits using 3D technology as my medium and the cubist vein as my style.
