The Artist about her Artwork:

“I´m destined to paint. Already as a child I discovered my passion for painting. As I grew up with animals, they had a special place in my work from the start and they still have until today. I specialize in horses. My heart´s horse „Prinz Picado“, who accompanied me on my journey through life for 14 years, appears again and again in my works. Every work begins with a story. I do not look for my motifs – the stories that want to be told through paintings find me. In addition to traveling to distant countries, everyday topics are also my source of inspiration. It excites me to discover small peculiarities of nature and to capture them for the viewer”.
