Born in Germany and living there for the first 9 years of my life gave me an open view of the world. I knew at an early age we weren't the same and as I grew older, I embraced my differences. This attitude is reflected in my work.
I am lucky to have been born with the joy gene. Most of the time I am in a happy state of mind and this is also reflected in my work.
I make my art from a place that is beautiful, quiet and loving. I want people to feel that when they look at my work; feel safe and drawn in. I try to make paintings that reflect a sense of calm, a sense of meditation. I think of my work as Visual Sanctuaries. .
Where I create, there I am true. Rainer Maria Rilke
