Painting Style

I paint floral impressions. My work is inspired by nature, my garden, the sky, the earth,              

the sun and the wind.

When I paint I follow the stream of my creativity. Stimulated by flora I abstract these natural impressions into color-intensive, dynamic surfaces and combine those with filigree forms and structures.

The colors and the light, the energy and dynamics of the expression are important to me. I love color contrasts and a strong rhythm which I combine into a fantastic harmony with each painting.

Over many years, I have developed my style from painting and naturalistic, figurative representations to today's expressive, abstract work.

I want to inspire the viewer with my art, to bring color and joy into their lives. Touch them emotionally and let them experience life.

I mainly work with acrylic paint on canvas, heavy artist paper and wood. I am fortunate that my studio has a gallery of its own, where visitors are always welcome.
