about me

my earlier training as an architectural draftswoman demands most of all precision and a great deal of detailed work.
today this practice has a great influence on the style of my paintings and my way of working.

my motifs show a special fondness for purist, minimalist design. I like to work with reductions right up to symbolism. clear simple forms which despite their apparent simplicity can communicate extensive contents are what is fueling my imagination.
it are situations of everyday life that inspire my motifs - it is their humorous or often ironic side which I want to highlight in my pictures.
one of the main items in my paintings is love in all it's facets and varieties.
the heart as a symbol of love and the elephant (SaSchi-FANT) as a symbol of luck are the most striking features in my paintings.

my artworks can be ordered as a canvas print or framed art prints directly from my online gallery.

 

I also accept individual contract work !
