In love with dots and colors

I don't exactly know how it happened, but about three years ago I just fell in love with dotpainting. Since then, I produced hundreds and thousands of colorful dots. Every single dot of my artwork is made with the back of a paintbrush or a skewer.

Most of the dots created and decorated vibrant and colorful paintings on canvas. After a while I also started dotting on other materials like wooden letters and stones. And there are so many more ideas of projects I get excited about. I think guitars need dots... and letter boxes, dining tables, mugs, clocks, even my car may one day... but let's stop day dreaming and come back :)

A while ago I thought long and hard about how to describe my role in this process of creation. So at first I came up with a description of the "doing-part" of my work. So, as I am creating artwork, I'd say I am a 1974 German artist from Berlin, currently living in Nelson, New Zealand. I also created two lovely children (still without any dots - but with some freckles) what makes me a mother, too. That is maybe as good as it gets and one half of the truth.

The other half is a secret I'd like to share with you:
Sometimes it does not feel like I am doing anything at all - especially nothing anyhow related to "work". Yippieh! :) It is just like falling into meditation... something is created through my hands and I am just going with the flow. I am often really amazed about the process of a dot painting coming into life dot by dot. Deep. Colo rful. In divine arrangement. That is the "being-part" of my creations.

As both halves come together to one: Here is the "Art and Being" Shop.
I love to share my artwork with you and hope you enjoy the vibrant results of me falling in love with dots. If you like what you see, I suggest you also have a look at my website, like my page on facebook and order your own personal Dot-Painting or dot painted soulstone. I hope to hear from you soon.

Let your soul be touched ♥
