Achim was surrounded by art at an early age, but he didn’t start drawing until his 70s. His art is a hobby which keeps him busy; typically he will complete one of his signature works in one sitting, working late into the night. Achim has broad artistic tastes ranging from Paul Klee, Mark Tobey, Max Ernst, and Diego Rivera.
In 2002 Achim found accommodation within Wintringham Specialist Aged Care. Wintringham is a welfare organisation which among other things provides housing to older people who need it most.
In his own words, he describes himself as a “a loner with bizarre fantasies, who tries to hide from the world”.
