About Hanne Lore Koehler

CONTACT ME for painting commissions and inquiries about original paintings.

Born in Aachen, Germany, I grew up in Ontario, Canada, where I still live with my husband (the love of my life) and family, from which comes the inspiration for much of my work.

My vibrant watercolors, acrylic and oil paintings cannot be labelled in only one category. My paintings reflect my life: enriched with excitement as well as quiet times. My fascination with capturing a flash of movement in a motionless art form is evident in my sports paintings and energetic portraits. Moments of tenderness are reflected in my still life art, gardens and landscapes. Humor and silliness reflect in my fantasy illustrations.

Many aspects of my life are mirrored in my paintings. I am inspired by daily occurrences: the way a beam of sunlight can back-light a rose petal on a summer evening, a misty shadow on a moody meadow, children laughing, reflections. The icy crack of a slap shot at 5:00 a.m. practice is to me as intriguing to paint as the cup of steaming hot marshmallow chocolate afterward. The adrenaline rush felt by a skier blasting through powder, the priceless expressions on the faces of youngsters in an energetic soccer match, the simple flicker of a lace curtain in a summer morning farmhouse breeze, a new pet - life is full of excitement and wonder. I prefer to concentrate on painting the best of life rather than the worst; as such, my paintings often reflect my love and appreciation for country life and many of my portraits depict country children enjoying the simple pleasures that come with country living.

Although my subjects are as varied as my interests, they always exude my love of life. I hope to arouse a 'feel-good' emotion in the viewer with my paintings - happiness, reminiscence, excitement, contentment, amazement - as I try to satisfy the eye with form, the mind with purpose and the soul with imagination.

It was never my intention to become a famous artist but only to earn a living doing what I love to do. All my life I have painted for the joy of it. To see more of my work, please visit KOEHLER ART STUDIO GALLERY.
