For me as a painter, freedom and life balance are important concepts. The freedom to shape my day the way I want means a lot to me. And the freedom to paint wherever I want. That's why, since Corona, I only paint small formats, which are much more practical to have with you when you're on the road and sometimes stay somewhere else. So you always have your studio with you in a painting case, so to speak. I find life balance and relaxation through walks with my pug, reading and fitness....
Yes, I hopefully will have my own book soon.
It started with an idea some months ago to create a unique book with my pug paintings in it. It will be telling the story of the indian gir Kamal and her friends.
Today I did a spontaneous installation at my artist studio. It´s an hommage to the already deceased Tamara de Lempicka! She was and still is one of my role models as Art Déco painter who influenced mainly my poetry painting style, which I developed through years of autodidactic study of old masters.
