I founded the Red Balloon Studio in 2009, after many years' experience working in Design, Calligraphy and Fine Art. My goal was to combine all these areas under one roof and create a one-stop Fine Art Service.
Throughout my career working in the private, public and commercial sectors, my multi-skilled approach has offered customers a range of exciting design possibilities. Now Red Balloon Studio clients can benefit from from these skills. The end-product is quite simply a beautifully composed, professionally crafted and perfectly finished design for your project - whether illustration, calligraphy or fine art, or a combination of all three.
I hold a degree in Design (Bachelor of Design, Germany) and Illustration (Master of Design, United Kingdom), specializing in Illustration, and increasingly Fine Art. Since 2006, I have also been sharing my creative talents with others, teaching water colour painting and calligraphy. I am proud to have won a Fine Art Award in 2011 and two Calligraphic Awards in 2010 and 2011.
In this distant, call entre era, I prefer to offer a very personal and attentive service to all my clients. Consultations can be by phone, email, or whenever possible, face-to-face meetings.
Enjoy your visit here at Red Balloon. I look forward to hearing from you.
