I am a RENAISSANCE ARTIST, and my favorite musician is the Italian Baroque Composer Claudio Monteverdi > Pianto della Madonna et autres motets https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7GigIpxnPTs&feature=share Enjoy listening while watching my artwork …
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 Germany, traveling and my love for music is influencing my entire work, from Photography to Interactive Jewelry Design. The interaction with different mediums, space, light, form, and color fascinates me in each new piece. 2014 I started to teach myself the art of ENCAUSTIC … from a rough start and not liking it to entire fascination! … if you want to know why and how ;), feel free to read the following article > FROM”0″ TO “FIRESTORM I” + “JUICE OF LIFE” by KRISTINA SCHIRMER https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/from0-firestorm-i-juice-life-kristina-schirmer-kristina-schirmer/
“JUICE OF LIFE” – AN ENCAUSTIC SCULPTURE 24 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ x 3 1/2″ or 61,5 x 14 x 8.8 cm
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”. Some of my art is very elaborate, other pieces are totally reduced and calm. Most of them are very colorful FUF – CITY PATTERN https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6fFE_0xxmfI and CITY LIMITS https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5Ltc1aQZWtA , others are more calm in appearance as BLUE CITIES https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7SchUX88DBg and BUTTERFLY KISSES FOR YOU https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rCBlC6nwMOM … see what resonances deeper with you.
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 which reflect and connect. 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.
Feel free to let me know …
