About Me

Bio

Born and raised in Germany, I have been living in Brooklyn, NY since 2009, writing and making art under my own name and the pseudonym L Peregrine. I was named Author of the Month by Spillwords Press in December 2017 and have published poems and artwork in Chaleur Magazine, The Esthetic Apostle, Silver Needle Press and more. My paintings and mixed media art have been exhibited at the Brooklyn Museum, The Living Gallery and Pratt Institute, among other places. I graduated with master’s degrees from the University of Oxford, England, and the Sorbonne in Paris, France.

 

As a partner and Executive Producer at music and audio production company YouTooCanWoo, I aim to cultivate a supportive environment for unique creative voices and find connections between different forms of expression. In 2017, I opened the YouTooCanWoo gallery to provide opportunities to showcase and engage with the amazing visual artistic talent in our creative community and create immersive experiences.

Artist Statement

I am interested in exploring themes of freedom, identity, memory, and truth(s) on a personal and socio-political level across different media. My work is an exploration and expression of my inner worlds as they interact with the outer world. It unfolds with my life experiences, progresses as I learn, and changes as my perspectives shift. As I consider beauty; as I contemplate the dreamlike vastness of the desert; as I fight for social justice - my practice evolves. At different times, art may serve the purpose of silent contemplation and inner reflection or it may aim to provoke a debate or call to action.

As an art major in school I focused on figurative drawing and painting. More recently I have been experimenting with photography, film, printmaking and mixed media,  often incorporating words into my work and pushing toward surrealism and abstraction.
