with water colors. First brush strokes seemed magical.
When I tried the oils, it even increased my wish to
create a new world. The final aim was to get the feeling
that the picture is breathing and sparkling. And gets
the life of its own.
art I found something that makes the air around pictures
speak and it became for me the paradox means of
expression. To my opinion, abstraction doesn`t deny

.. Each page is a painting. Rush changing of images and
scenes creates movement, flight in different directions.
The book is full of beautiful images that I have been

“Elixir for the Heart”, “Tender Touches”.

life without rules and conditions. There is only one

my flowering abstract art over to your unique perception.
And wish you fresh and truly abstract love.
