I call myself an abstract expressionist,
because I want to convey inner images,
impressions, feelings and moods
through an abstract expressive way.
With my art I want to
pass on a message,
influence the atmosphere,
create a legacy.
Since my early childhood I have been fascinated by colours, shapes and all creative experimentation. During my kindergarten years, I brought home stacks of paper of children's drawings almost every day. Then when my mother regularly took me shopping at the art and craft shop, I could hardly believe my luck. This is where my creative journey began. However, it took many more years and different professional stations until I arrived at my passion and vocation.
I am a trained designer for visual marketing, graphic designer (i. t.) and graduate social worker / graduate social pedagogue. During a 2-semester art therapy studies at the end of the 1990s, I discovered acrylic painting as the perfect medium for me, as it suits my love of experimentation and abstract expression very well.
With a lot of passion, commitment and experience I create unique works of art. I love to work in layers and to use the palette knife and the painting knife to fill many layers of intense colours on top of each other. This means that in one painting there are often several works hidden behind what is visible, which gives the painting a deeper expression. In the mixed media works made of structural paste, colours, pigments, sand, paper, gold leaf, etc., my enthusiasm for experimental work is expressed.
Sunrises and sunsets fascinate me, the changing colours of the seasons inspire me, as do the mountains and the endless sea. I am also inspired by stylish design, interesting architecture, old castles and all kinds of museums. However, the deepest source and power of my inspiration is the Book of Books and my faith in the King of Kings.
In my gallery you will find a selection of paintings from the last two decades. If you would like to purchase works or have project enquiries, I look forward to hearing from you.
