My biography

In my early days of childhood I was constantly aware of my growing passion for creativity. My mind was bursting with ideas and I visualized the results as they took on format. I felt the urge to capture the many breathtaking moments of beauty of life on canvas. At the age of eight I was given my first camera which ever since has been my constant companion. During the autodidactic beginnigs of my youth I was fortunate enough to have Alexandre Ignatkov from Russia and Lilo Müller from Eutin as mentors. They influenced my style expressing the basic foundations of art and were of great inspiration to me  for their perfection.

 

I often work with strong vivid colours depending greatly on my mood or situation. I observe my surroundings  closely after which I then bring to life in a bold or bashful setting. As on the haze over the Baltic sea where I live or in the warm and mild climate  of my home in Spain.

 

I am fascinated whith people. I find them wonderful and all unique. I enjoy scrutimizina their walks im life and they reflect is image thereafter im my work.

 

In 1999 I began to experiment with photography and development techniques. I discovered different ways of transforming colours and styles without losing the originality of the composition/theme.

This derived from work by the late Andy Warhol whose modern art work influenced and inspired me greatly.

 

Since 2007 I work as a freelance arts activist with numerous exhibitions at home and abroad.
