As an autodidact artist, I feel like an explorer every time I open the door of our atelier backstube in Stuttgart. My paintings are inspired by the people I meet and their stories, the nature around me, my travels or those that friends are kindly sharing with me and of course the many artists I admire. The ideas are simple, the creative process is more complex and challenging. While I deep dive into my subjects, there are great moments of joyfulness and eagerness but also apprehension and uncertainty; when these moments come I recall the wonderful Paula Modersohn-Becker: “And if this New one doesn’t please you, console yourself at the thought that there will be a time when this New will be replaced by something Newer.”

Thank you for coming and coming back for the newer!
