Landscapes are my main subject in painting.
I like to travel through Germany and Europe, collecting impressions with the camera.
At home I try to incorporate my memories of the places and feelings there into the paintings. And maybe I also awaken memories or longings in the viewer.

The rhythm of the waves that run on the beach, lick the sand, withdraw again, has a relaxing effect and also lets my thoughts run free.
France is a favorite travel destination because of its diversity.

Collioure, located directly on the Pyrenees, has been a magnet for painters since 1905. Matisse, Picasso, Braque, they have all been here.
