Painting…. pure passion

No tight style – open to originate something new and explore fascination

I’m interesting in human beings. They have two faces. The face for yourself and one for the others. But what means “to have this face for yourself”? This is one point of my interest, to think about that point, explore and express what that means. “to have it for yourself” is a feeling and in behind a (liv/fe-)story. To fix moments on canvas, is my challenge and a motivation. To capture a whole life in one moment, is for me pure excitement and a dare. 

And afterwards the nagging questions: Have you really get this only and lonely moment? This expression of the life you see in all its facets? You mesmerized it with colours on the canvas? You find the right way to capture and transport “to have it for him/herself” to the outside, or not? Is it lively and our ultimate concern?
At the end only the spectator could give a last judgment, if it’s for him a new and engaging moment.

„To paint“

Sustenance of my soul
My obsession
My craze
My passion and zeal

My paintings are my biography

Same as it ever was
Same as it ever is
And it will stay that way

To paint is an important part of my life. It belongs to me and it’s a part of me and my existence.
With the friendly and lovingly assistance of my family I can only work: my husband and my kids. I’m deeply grateful about that.

I love my life and the life itself, with all the tops and downs. Life is beautiful.
