Since I moved to Algarve, my new life and the bright light has influenced the colors in my paintings – as have the motives. The wind, the oranges, the lemones and the fish are new. I paint what I feel and experience in life because – I am a true artist. I create what needs to be created and paint what needs to be painted. I am a visual artist. I choose expressions depending on what I want to tell you about.

I photograph, build installations, draw – but I love painting. The women in my paintings are a visualization of human being. The women have contact with the divine. And often they succeed with the impossible. The paintings I see as tribute to the ladies who take care of our wild cats – Caring for the family and for our nature. For life on and on. The red shoes stand for the free word to speak.
