As a native of Sylt, I am very close to the sea and the coast. When I paint, I can dream myself there and almost smell the salty air.

On long walks, I capture my impressions by sketching and taking photos to bring them later on canvas or paper.
I apply my passion in different techniques, depending on the motive and intention.

I prefer watercolour and oil paints if I want to work looser. Watercolours can almost paint by themselves if you let them. I find it exciting to give up a little bit of control to see what happens. In oil, I usually paint alla prima and also on location en plein air.
I like to paint my Wildlife paintings realistically and in acrylic. As acrylic paints dry faster, multiple coats can be applied quickly to create depth.

I need the change between very realistic painting in acrylic to paintings that begin to live by abstractions as in the watercolours or oil paintings. The furthest abstraction I achieve with my linocuts. My intention is to represent and create moods through colour and form and yet to work in a looser and painterly way.
