I was born on January 6th 1966 in Essen (Germany). After completing my studies in Düsseldorf to become a social worker, I worked for several years as a social assistant.
I have been living on the beauful island of Mallorca since 1996.
My professional art studies began in 2000 and between the years of 2004 and 2007 I attended courses at the prestigious European Art Academy in Trier.
Then on Mallorca I have been a very active member of Quart Creixent studio in Palma de Mallorca.

The subjects of my work are urban scenes, people, arquitecture and landscapes, my preferred techniques are watercolours, mixed media and acrylics. I love strong contrasting colours and use them with vast variations of intensities.
I am truly fascinated by Expressionism.
When I am painting I am not especially concerned with creating an exact reproduction of what I see, it is rather my own personal vision.
We could say semi abstract. I leave the work´s interpretation up to the viewer.
Here I would like to show my latest works in mixed media on paper. They are mostly human figures.
The measures are 42x 59,4 cm

The girl in the yellow shirt is looking at a book and at the same time seems completely lost in thought. I started this painting with watercolour and then worked on it with pastel chalk. It is a combination which I like very much. Something unexpected always emerges.
