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. Prefer small and medium formats because I think that my style is best expressed here. I am fortunate that my studio has a small gallery of its own, where visitors are always welcome.
