I am fascinated by painting - the power an feeling of colors, surfaces, shapes and lines. My painting style is abstract/expressive. I enjoy absolute freedom, passion, selfindulgence, the joy of experimenta-tion nothing slows me down. Only in the course of the act of painting, after many layers of paint, warping, overpainting, do I find an answer to the question of where the journey is going. Mainly I work on large-format canvases with acrylic, ink, pigments and oil paints. Bio/Artistic career: Born in Mönchengladbach. Art-Studies in Bonn.
