Obsessed with colors
Born with art I started creating at young age.
My books in school were always full of drawings, it was my way of concentrating. I had my first exhibition with 14 years, I tried to earn money as i wanted to travel to Argentina for 3 month. It was a huge success, almost all of the 40 water color paintings were sold. After 3 month in Argentina, at the age of 15 I spend one year in Denver, Colorado where i joined the theatre club and got in charge of the set-design. Those huge backdrops set me on fire with acrylic colors and bigger dimensions. Back in Germany I did my second exhibition 1999 in Bremen. I started studying Design and had less time for painting. I was never able to paint just a little and continue later, it was either full in or nothing. So i decided 2002 to take a 6 week break of all and paint my 3rd exhibition. After that another 2 years without touching a brush. 2004 was another attempt, I actually finished that exhibition but that collection never convinced me, i decided to not show it here. I moved to Spain 2005 and got pregnant 2006 which was the right time for me to take time for a new collection and exhibition in Marbella 2006. It wasn't that easy with a small child to continue my path, but my big dream to have an exhibition in London knocked on my for 2008, i only had 5 weeks to create that exhibition.
After having my second child I didn't feel like painting for a long time, actually 10 years :(. Creating art is like a drug to me, being so limited with time due to my new role as mother I decided to train myself on photography. This turned quickly into my new profession.
2016 Nestor Burgos was introduced to me, an amazing Make-up artist from Argentinia who works in the movie industry. Together we created a series of photography that reminded me so much of my paintings that I couldn't hold it back any longer. Every painting of my 2018 collection is based on one of the portraits we created together. As I still couldn't just take off 6 weeks like I used to do in previous exhibitions, I needed to learn to paint them over a whole year, it was the most challenging situation.
Why did i never study art?
With young age i already developed a certain style of drawing, when my school teachers tried to change me it never felt right to me. I wasn't really comfortable in the "art scene", for me it never made sense to "grade" and value art, either you like it or not. Studying art meant to me exposing my soul to some "art" experts and allow them to add their influence on me. This is why I studied Design, creative work but not emotional bounded.
The deeper meaning in my paintings?
Can I paint other styles or make a copy of my own artwork?
No, I cannot even copy my own artwork. I also don´t really like the idea of painting on request as the outcome is not the same, as it does not come from my deep emotion. I did mention here that I can try but it would just not mean the same to me.
