My style of painting I call poetism, because for me painting means to express poetry in color and form. I was inspired mainly by the style
of French Art Deco and Art Nouveau and the painting of the "Fauves".
Childhood & Youth
1968 I was born and raised in Pforzheim, Germany. I was fascinated by painting from a very early age, as my father was an art dealer and art auctioneer. Surrounded by art and paintings of different eras and styles, I collected wonderful impressions in elegant surroundings and painted my green frog in oil on wood as a child. Thus, the desire to be artistically active itself arose early. However, I first learned the profession of jewelers goldsmith at the goldsmith school Pforzheim.
Decision for painting
It was only when I became a mother that I decided that painting was my way of expressing myself and my sensitivity to poetry in painting. There followed several years of self-taught study, inspired mainly by French painters of Art Deco, while I was at home with my three children. Since 2001 I worked as a painter.
This was followed by international exhibition participation and international medals and diplôme.
From December 2011 to summer 2013 I lived in France.
After that I became seriously ill with depression and it took five years until I could paint again.
My little pug Coco and faith in God helped me to get out of the blockage again and the
Meanwhile I paint in Pforzheim and Baden-Baden.
