"The creative process is a kind of dialogue between myself and the medium. Having worked for years in the language and communication field, there was a moment in my time in Chicago, language changed into "visual language". The combination of several art techniques - the traditional ones (in particular drawing and painting) and the digital tool - became my medium.
Focusing on color and composition, structures as well as patterns, I am connecting and expanding ideas in a visual way. In my recent work, I add to my pictures a new dimension: Fibers and forms are running through, are multiplied and manipulated to catch the beauty and fascination in these elements.
In my photographic work I want to simplify the view of our environment, to show the beauty around, to make feel the fascination and daily personal adventure. So, I am working on new art seriesconnecting and expanding ideas by catching short stories in pictures based on everyday life. My personal engagement in art is to make our environment visible."
