For more than 20 years I have been singing and telling stories with children in Germany, France, the United Kindom, Poland and elsewhere. I also teach children’s songs to nursery and primary school teachers.

I have been singing with adult audiences for many years, and since 2005 also participate in story-telling events for adults, both as story-teller and musician.

I also write and translate tales and songs. My song “Étincelles” (“Sparks”) won 1st prize in the French songwriting competition “Chansons sans frontières” in 2016.
