Individual lessons with Bernd Mechler, Düsseldorf
Nothing stays as it seems. This is suggested by the present works on black with interference colors that have been created in my studio in recent months. When I stand in front of “Ishtar’s Garden”, I see rich colors. If I move to the side, my impression of the color changes radically: from light blue to fine green, from strong green to eggplant, grey steel or a delicate pink.

It all began at home. My father retired in 1996, after working as a house painter. The family came together for a glass, we drank to his well-being, to his coming years and talked about his first projects “in freedom”.
While we young people imagined a liberation from the yoke of work, my father sketched out his concrete idea on half an A4 sheet: A surprising and convincing color structure for my sister's garage door. That looked great! Even the sketch was a delight. What had we missed all these years? Why did we know, why didn't I know?
His simple answer: “I couldn’t have brought you up working as an artist.” In the same year, as a well-established professor, I began a further training course “Basics of Painting” in Leipzig in order to find out what I might have inherited from his talent. I've been painting ever since.
In 2017, after an experimental year full of exploration, I decided to position myself professionally on the art market.
