My work is about dealing with the real world and above all using the images that surround us in everyday life. To lure a participant into new and perhaps unexplored area. I paint what attracts my attention. The theme depends on the situation.Words are drawings, color is an adjective and a verb, form is a structured sentence, rhymes are rhythmic repetitions of shapes, punctuation is a negative space to enchant the eye into faith, evoke emotional memory and reactions for a moment or forever. I visited an art high school and studied at the Academy of Fine Arts Poznan and Freie Kunstschule Wiesbaden. I live and work in Maintal, near Frankfurt am Main.
