Artist Statement:

“Above all, I am a painter. I love colors and I show it very clearly especially in my paintings. I think there is always something missing if I don’t add strong, intense colors to my works. A very dear friend from Germany said once, when she looked at my abstract paintings, that the philosopher and poet Novalis and his fragment „Heinrich von Ofterdingen“ came to her mind, where Heinrich is looking for the blue flower. After having read that book I noticed that Novalis described the landscapes just the way I see them in my own paintings. My inspiration mostly comes from nature.

My abstract, layered paintings come into being as the colors racket on the canvas. The artwork is ready when they converse and take up a position of my choosing. My inspiration originates mostly from the beautiful and versatile nature of Italy.“
