I was born in Northern Germany and I grew up in Frankfurt, Wiesbaden and Heidelberg.
I started painting at the age of 14.
I studied Art & Design in the late 70´s at the University of Applied Sciences Mannheim, Department of Design
In the 80´s I owned and operated a shop in Wiesbaden for art handicraft
In the 90´s I spent a lot of time travelling to places like Ibiza, Bali, Goa, Bahamas which all left their own special impressions and tastes.
In the 2000`s I fell in love with a Greek Island which became my second home and through the influence of the light and colours from my natural environment my painting style developed and was influenced to more free forms.
In the beginning I had been fascinated by detail (which one can see in my early work). Later I became interested in more Abstract forms, more I let my energie come through.
Painting belongs to me, it means freedom to me. I can live and express my personality within it, without borders. I let my inner instinct decide the choice of colours, and they express a wish of breaking free from bonds. Simultaneously it’s about transformation and a way free for my fantasies to express themselves, in direct connection to the here and now, which is again reflected in my work.
Painting is my life!
