About me

A s long as I can remember, I have always been fascinated by paintings, mainly by filigree water colours.
Once I got a box of water colours, this for me was the entry into the world of brush, canvas and paper…
First it was hard work and studying, but with  time it became more and more spontaneous, intuitive and emotional, alongside with inspirations and approval for some successful paintings.

My home

I was born in the palatinate, the sunny southwestern part of Germany. This is where I grew up and where I still live today – in the so called “Leininger Land” (a county named after a famous aristocratic family, the house of Leiningen). My studio is located in the outskirts of the medieval village of Neuleiningen, surrounded by the sun-blessed vineyards. Just as the grapevines love the palatinate´s mediterranean warmth, I also feel the comfort of  this lovely climate, between the river Rhine and the palatinate forest.
