LIVES AND WORKS
LIVES AND WORKS
DATE OF BIRTH
I was born in 1964 in Hamburg, Germany, but have been living in Luxemburg for about twenty years now. I always loved paintings as well as to paint by myself, but this passion has been in the background for many years while I have studied, worked as an engineer and later on raised my three children.
After many years I decided to start painting and worked a lot at home where I quickly rediscovered my love and passion for it. I took painting classes from a Luxemburgish artist, there I learned to perfect my techniques more and more.
But it was not until some life-changing events in 2017 and 2018 that I decided to take my art more professional and make a career out of it. Now I am moving into a new phase of my life – an art life.
In the beginning I worked realistic with still lives and landscapes. But over the years I have learned that in abstract works I can better express myself and today more or less all my works are abstract paintings. While painting I'm building the oil colours in several layers with a colour palette ranging from soft and serene to vibrant and invigorating. My inspiration I draw mostly from nature and its many different colours.
I like as well to do some watercolours from time to time. Here I appreciate the delicacy and the sensitive treatment of the work.
For me, abstract painting means that my inspiration is translated to the canvas to create a story that communicates without talking. I invite the viewer to a visual journey, which allows her/him to slow down and find time to understand emotions and forget our busy world for a while. The imagination of every spectator should make the painting complete. It allows personal and unique interpretations.
WHO I AM
I am an emerging Artist and I do abstract paintings inspired by nature and colours.
