MEDIUM: Mixed Media Art | Collage Art
SPECIALTY: ✔ Generalist

My art reflects my life in an abstract way and is my way of expressing what I am not able to vocalize.

Living in an old house in the countryside fort he past thirteen years has influenced my art. Being surrounded by nature and observing its constant change has shifted the focus of my artmaking toward exploring the themes of time and transience.

I create my work in solitude and loose myself completely in the process letting the image find its own path and just let the magic happen. I am faszinated by the materiality of papers and of the possiblities and textures that develop in the process of creating. Using my own experiences and sometimes my own photos as a starting point I aim to bring the image into universalization by abstraction.

The images symbolize the process of life, the gathering of experiences and impressions, the aging, the remembering and forgetting as well as everything cyclic in nature that is often represented by the use of the shape of the circle in my work.
