I am a painter and performance artist. I studied voice and movement at Monsun Theatre and Theatre Orange. Fine art studies at FIU Hamburg/Germany, further studies with Markus Lüpertz and Jens Hasenberg.
My process of painting is about allowing the subconscious to express. I tend to seek the raw and instinctive path. The human figure with its gestures, human emotion and relationships is my strongest inspiration. Working as a dancer and therapist refined my perception of physical expression, sensing the emotion and the potential behind movements and gestures. I also draw a lot of inspiration from nature.
Painting for me is both about consciously using technique as well as losing control in the course of creating. I am drawn to expressive physicality, strong colors, lots of layering and abstraction while mixing techniques and styles to create a work that springs from the inner necessity to be open for the moment.
In my search for authentic expression I am beginning to understand that the essence of painting is found within the unsaid, abstract and unplanned while working consciously with realistic elements, as well as composition and color.
I get excited when I don’t quite know how a painting is going to evolve, actually I like to interact with the piece of work and be surprised by the process of painting. I enjoy to leave a painting at a point where questions are still open and the viewer is left with his own imagination.
Born in Hamburg/Germany, raised in Spain and Germany, I first studied graphic design, then went to voice and theatre school. Extensive performance studies with Suprapto Suryodarmo, a Javanese dancer and Performance artist, as well as Butoh dance and Contact Improvisation. After some years of performing, I eventually became a dance therapist and counselor, a field in which I worked for many years.
My son was born in 1998.
I have lived in the U.S., Spain and Germany.
From 2007 to 2014 I founded and managed the LOTUS Centre for dance and creativity.
In 2015 I went back to school to fulfill another passion of mine, and studied art at FIU Free International University in Hamburg, Germany. FIU was founded by students of Joseph Beuys.
Further studies with Jens Hasenberg and Markus Lüpertz.
I am now living a nomad life between Hamburg/Germany and Ibiza/Spain.
