Something about my art:

My favourite technique is to paint with oil colour. The painting will be built by different coats. First I paint the background and I create the construction of the painting and then I work on the details. This gives the painting a three-dimensional touch.

In 2006 I began to paint on velvet. This is a very difficult and intensiv technique and it takes a lot of time to work the oil colour into the velvet. I have to work really exact because the velvet is "living" with its hairs. Sometimes I d'ont paint the background so you will see the character of the velvet. It should not be only a painting but a special painting on velvet. I use also different colours ov velvet and the result is really special.

I draw with pencil, coloured pencil, water colour and charcoal. Sometimes I use a combination of it and I can get the strokes stronger.

Meine Bilder erscheinen dem Betrachter auf den ersten Blick nicht spektakulär oder aussergewöhnlich aber beim zweiten und dritten Blick wird man laut Aussage der Betrachter ins Bild gesaugt. Man steht dort und ist fasziniert von den Farben und der Tiefe, den Details. Die Bilder werden nicht langweilig, immer wieder setzt man sich davor und schaut.
