My professional training began in the creative trades in the early 1980s studying design techniques with Prof. F. R. Knubel. I was a participating artist at the Kaiserlautern International Stone Sculpture Symposium when I came across some experiential work. This changed my life completely. I became interested in experiential practices of all kinds and started my clinical career. Forty years later I am working artistically again. Am deeply grateful for this turn back
