I grew up in a very small town in Germany surrounded by forests, farmland and wild nature.
Horses played a very important role throughout my whole life.

GALLERY

I used to wander off for hours whenever I could and spend my day outside, taking in the sounds and scents of nature, spending time with animals and playing in the woods. When I was outside my life was magic and I took this magic home with me and would spend the rest of the day painting . Throughout the years I have learned to work with a number of different mediums and a lot of my early studies and works where focused on fine art and naturalistic landscape painting, portrait painting and paintings of horses. But over the years I began to work more expressive and semi abstract . My colours became more vibrant and much stronger, especially since I started to work with acrylics and using pigments to make my own egg tempera paint . Today I like to work free from everything, just listen to my inner voice and feelings, but my experiences from my childhood past are still present and they appear in my paintings in a different way. My landscape paintings today are far from realistic, they resemble more of a dreamscape, probably something we all carry in our self somewhere, a magic hideout for our inner being. Along with the figure of the horse and other animals which are giving a longing for freedom and Empathy on a different level. I also like to experiment with different emotions and feelings in human figurative painting, looking for answers in what we are and why...
