Born and raised in northern Germany, Frauke graduated from the University of Berlin. Now the master of six languages, she works as a freelance translator. All this time Frauke has been creating art, experimenting with style and technique – gouache and silk painting, stained glass, tile mosaic, knitting, crocheting, jewellery, and more.
She has always found inspiration from the art, colours and cultures around her. Today, the central theme of her work is the steady and inexorable destruction of nature by human civilisation. Frauke expresses this in her recycling themed art. She endeavours to find new life for items discarded by civilisation.
She creates jewellery from natural stones, china chips, beach glass and wire. Most of her current work has been assembled from material collected on the Isle of Man.
