My way of painting has developed unhindered over the past 20 years and is attributed to Neo-Expressionism due to its intense Color palette and the figurative painting. Man and nature are my main topics. Especially the respectful representation of women in all their emotional and visual facets is the central theme of my work. My pictures are colorful snapshots between dream and reality. Often mysterious and fairytale and want to find the way to the heart of the observer. As a typical feature of my pictures, a paradisiacal subject has established itself. Plants and animals have moved from the original decorative element in the foreground. Human and nature. Communication at all levels with the originality of creation.
