I come from a childhood of often travelling, discovering, and seeing new places. Originally of German nationality, but born in South East Asia, we were full-time volunteers, doing natural disaster relief work in countries like Indonesia, Philippines and Japan.
I think that’s one thing that greatly influenced my art later on. I love to cheer people up with my art and create beautiful worlds of magic and mystery, stories of hope and beauty.
I now live in Italy with my 2 boys and Italian husband. I have now become full-time artist, teacher and mom, painting every day with mixed media and watercolors. I love write stories and poems with my art, and my art is often inspired by the fairytales I invent for my boy’s bedtime. I long to tell stories through art, whisking away the viewer to an enchanted land where anything is possible.
I am truly happy and blessed to be able to do what I love, and share my techniques, art and stories with others.
I believe there is magic to be found in everything, and each and every one of us. We are all creative souls longing to be heard and to express.
My wish is to help others find their creative voice, and their magic, through sharing my journey. Of how I discovered my authentic self through art.
I hope you will join me on this journey of self-discovery and finding your true voice, and your creative magic.
