My Art Journey

In 2009 i started this shop with a few small works of art. I was working from my tiny apartment-studio in my home town in Germany. At the time creating large works of art was very challenging due to the lack of space.
My goal was to make my art known outside conventional galleries, and to reach a wider audience worldwide and being on Etsy helped me achieve this. Since then i have uploaded new work constantly and turned this shop into a real online galley, with over 300 pieces of art, from miniatures to very large paintings.
I try to create artwork for every budget, so anyone can own an original!

Work process
I put a lot of effort and dedication into building my art career and i am happy to be where i am now.
I strive for the best quality in materials and finish. My paintings are created using professional grade paints like Maimeri Puro, Rowney Artists Oils, Lukas Oils, Rembrandt Oils, Kremer and Maimeri pigments, as well as iridescent and metallic acrylics for certain details.
Once dry, the paintings are coated with varnish to protect them against UV radiation, dust and preventing the colors from fading over time.
I only use high quality primed cotton canvas, hand stretched on sturdy wooden bars.
You can rest assured that your artwork will look great over the years!
All my works are originals hand painted by me, and shipped from my studio!

About my art and inspiration
As you browse through my paintings , you can see my art is inspired by birds, rain, water, forests and colors found in nature. Abstraction allows a lot of freedom. I create abstract art, because i like to express what i see through colors and textures which can "speak" to the viewer in different ways. The choice of color matters the most for my paintings. I use bold jewel colors, neutral, earthy or dark tones of gray and metallic effects.
My signature series available in my shop:
"Frozen Lake" (since 2008)
"Reflections" (since 2009)
"Rain" (since 2009)

I hope you enjoy my work, and thank you for taking the time to read more about it!
