Short Description:
As an office manager in the support process and as a team member in the green growth process, I am responsible for the continuous process in day-to-day business operations. My background lays in training as an office clerk and a successfully completed study degree as an artist with title and distinction.

Office work and art. Through my experiences during my art studies and in numerous exhibitions afterwards I got an insight into the work and perspective of different internationally recognized artists and the art business.

The balancing act between office work and artistic creation resulted in wonderful situations!

As an office worker, I have not hidden my artistic work. The result: all of my colleagues have always followed my invitations to vernissages. People who previously had no contact with art and who did not dare to go to galleries now spent their evening in front of pictures, objects, videos and performances with art connoisseurs and collectors. Things that initially seemed incompatible have converged. The encounters left positive and lasting traces and an additional profound experience to the artistic and commercial experiences. Bringing different perspectives and ways of thinking together is worth every effort.

With this vigor, I support the Green Growth team in their project work and as an office manager I am responsible for the preparation of the bookkeeping, maintenance of incoming and outgoing invoices, transfers and reviews of reimbursements, support with audits (project reviews), preparation of the annual financial statements, maintenance of all usual personnel documents. I am responsible for all general office organization. Since 2020 I am a member of GCF.
