It started with some naked men 10 years ago. Two of the large scale paintings sold immediately... and I knew I had started something I enjoyed very much! Art has been my passion for my whole life - collecting and creating - and my style choices are Abstract Minimalism and Urban Art.
I am a German born artist who moved to New York in 1993. After 10 years of working for the ARD (German Public TV and Radio) as a producer, I started freelancing as a documentary producer. After five more years of that I decided to get back to painting. Today I am confident in creating artworks in my own style. I work in series and paint realistically - when creating "Crushed" Champagne Cans - and abstract - when I paint large scaled portraits. I enjoy color compositions as much as political statements and feel that I have a voice and a way to express my opinions visually. My collectors group spans from the US and Canada to Europe, Israel and Australia.
Painting for me is meditation through repetition. Here - form is everything.
My art idols are Yayoi Kusama, Mark Rothko, Gerhard Richter, Roy Lichtenstein and Wayne Thiebaud.
I have lived in New York, New Orleans and now moved to Mare Island in California. In Germany I lived
and worked in Bremen, Hamburg and Cologne.
