In the beginning, my artistic development was clearly shaped by the accuracy of my graphic profession. In the beginning, the focus was on realistic painting, the precise observation of the lights, shadows and perspective. This was also reflected in my choice of motif; landscapes fascinated me as well as still lifes, faces or macro shots of z.B. flowers or objects. In the course of my artistic development, my pictures became more free and expressive, which developed up to the abstract representation. However, my preferred materials such as acrylic and oil remained, often combined in mixed techniques, with structures or organic elements to give the respective motifs an individual depth and meaningfulness.
