Art has always been an integral part of my life. As a child growing up in Germany, I made dolls including their accessories, knitted intricately patterned sweaters of my own design and drew the surrounding nature.
After a teaching career in Florida and raising two sons, I was finally able to return to Springfield and the Art World with vigor.
My current style of brightly colored, large abstract and mixed media paintings, in which I fuse organic with geometric elements, is heavily influenced by my mentor Frits van Eeden, workshops in Taos, NM, Marco Island, FL, and many others.
My unique and highly textured pieces arouse curiosity in every viewer of my Art. The Airport is currently featuring two 48×48 pieces “Paganini’s Violin Concerto Nr 2” which were painted on stage with the Symphony in January of this year.
My art is inspired by a plethora of images from nature, other artists like Cezanne, Monet, O’Keeffe, Macke, Rothko and Richter to name just a few, and of course color!
The environment I live in, the places I go to, they all carry inspirational power over me.
You can find my Award winning Art in a number of businesses, Art Fairs, Art events and airports in Florida, Missouri and Germany on a regular basis.
Appreciation for my art has led to numerous awards as well as being featured in a variety of local and international publications reaching as far as Korea and Germany. Private and corporate collectors of my Art can be found from Canada to South America and Europe.
