Visual Artist: mixed media, painting, sculpture

 

"My collages are made with man-made substances and found objects. Soil, wood shavings or the bark of a tree may be offset by a plane of solid paint. A branch or dying leaf may catch your attention. You will never cease to be surprised by nature's infinite shades of color and textural variations."                

Born 1952, Gelsenkirchen-Horst, Germany
