Gudrun works with acrylics in combination with pastel chalks, pigments and different materials.

Her aim is that her pictures shall awaken a feeling of space and width, painting on the borderline between order and chaos.

Impressions of the scenery, wildlife, and nature of Portugal, and Portuguese culture can be found in her pictures.
