At the age of 7 an illustration of a fairy tale won the first price in a Vienna school competition. From that time on I never stopped painting. I attended the artistic community college in Vienna and took part in advanced courses of European and American artists, to expand my artistic perspective.
Living part of the year in Europe (Vienna) and part in the US (Florida) I try to express the beauty that I see around me. The excitement of the change of seasons and the elusiveness of nature are what inherently draw me to paint plein air landscapes. To catch a special moment of a day is an on-going exploration of emotion and mood, of color and light during my painting process. I am not afraid trying new things and seeing each painting as an opportunity explore. Plein air painting is a wonderful way to be outside and to be totally connected to the subject. But I also enjoy studio painting.
I believe that a successful painting has a certain rhythmic and lyrical quality. I want my paintings to be an authentic expression of my heart and brain connection that comes through my creative Processing
Illustrations from my private collection can be found in both Europe and USA
