HER SECRET

and great attention to
her inner being

Artist Statement
BACK TO OUR ROOTS > stand up for yourSELF

What does it mean for you these days to be an ethical person, to rediscover your values and to integrate them into your life ? As we all know, a healthy personal self-esteem shapes us  and likewise a society where appreciation, authenticity, honesty and transparency are lived and in which integrity is created.

Back to our Roots, is a „Call“ for Mankind, to become aware of the Value of Love we were born with originally. It supports and enables us to develop our highest Potential.  My Life Story, as so the Art which was calling me made me  rediscover my Roots and my binding Strength of Love. The Energy of Love is the Source of my artistic Creation. It leads and shapes the development of my artwork from deep inside. The Force of this natural given Energy  takes up Space, expands and becomes tangible while it has an after Effect beyond the Visual. The Artwork represents this transformational Process.

The Radiation of this Energy is perceptive from one to three-dimensional Objects to multimedia Room Installations. The hidden Space within myself , this invisible Existence and reinforcing Form of Energy is the Essence or so called Source and therefore my Playground.  This Inner Space vibrates and releases the Energy of Love into a World where emotional, mental and material Attachment is still used as a Remedy in today’s Society. The Energy is a driving Force that can be recognized in every single Work of Art in the Style of the Color I use, the Shape, the Line and Structure. My artistic approach is informal, fluid and floats within. I AM … a state of Mind or call it Love  which is embedded in the Art I create and my Nourishment to be empowered to enlighten the WORLD with LOVE.
