philosophy
My mainstream is flexibility, not only the physically also the mental, because these are express of life – this is my opinion. With my paintings I express different subject area. My art is a creative process, sometimes emotional and full of colours, sometimes it feels like meditation. Since my childhood I spend my time in the nature. Water like lakes and rivers was always a main part in my life. Water is connected with quality of life and energy. This element influenced my life. Countries rich of wood and lakes or rivers, like Lunz am See, give me the power and energy. This is a place where I can be creative. But also the wide and the waves of the sea give me the opinion to dream and it brings my inspirations. I like to paint female figures and I connect these with the waves. The reason is because the original of life is into the water. So I set women as the representative for the further life. Trees are a next important symbol for life.
