Watercolorist with passion

In the many years of my artistic education I have learned and lived countless techniques.

But in the end watercolour crystallized as my medium.

The lively, colourful and spontaneous of watercolour is the mirror image of my inner self.

Watercolor Painting & Me

I would like to label my drawer in the painting with watercolor expressionism.

The colour detaches itself from the object - without losing it completely, the form changes and as a result the expression remains.


For me it is unimportant to reproduce what I have seen realistically, I would like to show you how I see the world. 

- with joy and love and not with criticism -


My painting is not critical - My world is not realism, but absolutely not romantically transfigured - rather modern, colorful, perhaps a little abstract, always based on the object but never photographic.
