artist statement

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 … and as I call it LOVE  which is embedded in the Art I create and my Nourishment to be empowered to enlighten the WORLD with LOVE.

about me

art reflects the divine...

and I am simply divine. And  this is not just a statement as the Divine plays an essential part in my life and  is reflected within my personality, the lifestyle I am drawn to and the art and consciousness  is therefore developing.  It is an adventurous journey to the inner core of myself and reveals who I really am.  Therefore I AM to me is the highest instance of spiritual consciousness and circumscribes the divine, the absolute. I experience this like a crystal-clear  essential energy, which empowers myself as so the Art which emerges . Call it Energy, Power, Force, Love… In this state of BEing I clairvoyantly   recognize all-embracingly . This awareness grounds me while the aesthetics of the invisible opens up and the voice of the Divine is present and Inner Wisdom arises. Therefore the Art is a Treasure in any kind – that’s it.  She vibrates like a sound system, has its own timbre and touches the deepest level of ones soul.  

ART is DIVINE as so AM I.
