I LOVE ART – I LOVE PEOPLE + I LOVE PEOPLE WHO LOVE ART
Hello everyone, I am a RENAISSANCE ARTIST, and my favourite musician is the Italian Baroque Composer Claudio Monteverdi.
Living here, in Marin County, with all the inspiration thru our absolutely breathtakingly beautiful environment and the interaction with the wonderful people. The sea and the light are very important to me and my work.
Having studied Architecture and Design in Europe, nature, travelling and my love for music influences my entire work, from Photography to Interactive Jewelry Design.
The interaction with different mediums, space, light, form, and color comes out in each new piece. I started to teach myself the art of ENCAUSTIC, 2014.
ENCAUSTIC SCULPTURES + PAINTINGS.
Personally as well as when it comes to my art- and design work, I am a big fan of thinking and living “out of the box”. I like to swim against the stream, and find my own techniques.
My art is sometimes very elaborate, other pieces are totally reduced and calm, but most of them are very colorful … although sometimes I also reduce the Colors now as well.
My work is created in “THE DOING” … my work is the result of what I see, smell, hear and experience in my life. My work is a translation onto canvas, wood or even into metal, fur and rubber. The later is about my jewelry. Doing a paintings or drawing often inspires me to a 3-dimensional sculpture as a a piece of jewelry or an encaustic sculpture, or vice versa. To me, Art, Design, Interior Design, and Architecture, Photography, etc. are all one; 2- or 3-dimensional creations which are creations on their own – reflecting +connecting.
Space, light, shape, color and texture – they all communicate with each other differently, and still, they are all connected within each other.
I want to share, for your experience, the great joy, happiness, and fascination I feel when I am creating my artwork + hope you enjoy that …
ART = LIMITLESS
