Hi, I’m Chris,
an artist, textile- & surface pattern designer, illustrator and writer based in Germany. I am creating artwork for everything that needs to have life and beauty on it, like fabric, apparel, wallpaper, stationery and much more. My artistic style is vibrant and colorful yet sophisticated, with a hand-made look and a poetic touch. My work is deeply inspired by wonderful nature as well as music, travel, architecture, literature and all the big and small but meaningful things around and the voice within me. I'm working in a multitude of media from pencil, ink, watercolor, gouache, mixed media & collage to digital.
Being creative was the only thing I ever really wanted to do, though it took me some years to finally take the courage to listen to my inner voice, follow my dreams, and start my creative journey as an artist. I took some wrong turns and detours on my way, but - long story short - finally, with some delay, today I have fulfilled my calling of being an artist. I’m honored to being allowed to share my interpretation of the beautiful magic of nature and everything that is through my artistic work with the world. I am completely self-taught, which I feel makes my own artistic voice and style even stronger and more authentic. If you are interested in the long(er) story behind my journey - you can read it here: „Short Story Long“
Thank you for being here with me, reading my story. I hope that my heART connects to you, and I would be happy if you’d like to walk some paths of my future journey with me.
Artist, Writer & Founder of PEPPERPRINT® CREATIONS
