In the 1980s I started a long term collaboration (over 8 years) with the art gallery in my city, designing and handmaking very exclusives fashion items and accessoires (like earrings, bags, etc.). For instance, in 1982 I designed my first jewellery set. My first fashion parade took place in Hersbruck, Germany, on 8th march 1997. Hersbruck has been my new "sweet home" for 25 years) .
For the last 10 years I have been collaborating with a company, which is one of the oldest in manufacturing high quality pencils. For more than 152 years and in the fifth generation, Comet Denecke has traditionally been producing highest-quality pencils - 100% Made in Germany. The manufacture of wooden pencils began in Nuernberg, Bavaria, as early as 1662. Emil Mahla, who founded the company to later be called Denecke, was the pencil supplier at the court of Ludwig 2nd. In this collaboration with Denecke I was introduced to all the secrets of pencil making and its history and I fell in love with it.
Following the concept of the synergy between tradition and modernity brought me to the idea of creating a collection of pencil extensions in an exclusive and luxurious design.
Around January 2011, a new collaboration was born. Wolfgang Luh, an internationally established artist, designer and cultural ambassador in Latin America, invited me to participate to a bilateral project between Germany and Argentine called "Black and White", having the unique theme "The Pencil".
