After working his way up to a senior art director position at IKEA he moved to London and was the senior art director for the home catalouges of Marks & Spencer as well as John Lewis. Several years later Hans ventured out on his own as a stylist and has since been a freelance art director and stylist for many companies around the globe. He is the author of four interior books published by Ryland Peters and Small in the UK. For his lastest book, Inspired by Nature, Hans photographed, styled and art directed the entire project.
