After studying art and manual education, artistic ambitions could be realized during free time, mainly with clay creations or with bookbinding work. It was when Dieter moved to Switzerland in 1993 that he had his first contact with quilting. Through courses, he learned traditional techniques which were soon expanded to new materials and processes to create textile art. In the meantime, it is always a challenge to find new ways to expand the range of possibilities of expression. Exhibitions have followed one another.
In 2020, 55 works were presented in Menton.
