Bio/Statement

My work is about life and water. My medium is watercolor.

I use watercolor as my medium to create paintings that express my ideas and feelings about water as it relates to life.
As a counterpoint to work fueled by ideas, I enjoy painting directly from life: perishible things, a model holding a pose for a limited time, and landscapes in changing light.

I have worked as a visual artist for 30 years. I grew up in Germany, received my basic artistic education there, and completed my education in studio arts by taking art classes in the United States. I studied with accomplished artists and at the University of Fine Arts in Berlin and at the School of the Art Institute in Chicago. Since 2011 I have focused exclusively on watercolor painting.

I am an active member of Castle Hill, Truro Center for the Arts: www.castlehill.org

This year I taught “Beginning Watercolor” as an online class.
In previous years I taught art classes at Castle Hill and the Oak Park Art League, IL

I have shown my work in galleries in Germany (where I was born and educated), in Turkey (where I lived from 1996 – 2000), and the United States (where I have lived since 2000). Every year I show during Open Studios in the South End, where I have a studio.
