- Well I had to be born some place,
and in my case it happened to be Germany -
- But what really made me the
person I am, is a chronic and rather incurable wanderlust, meeting new people, learning new ways of life and
- Having lived in - and visited
too many countries to mention, I am perfectly happy and would
welcome definition as: “Human, inhabitant of planet earth”
- In my opinion the people who
expose their true self's more then anyone are those working in the
“arts” - ...and writers, visual artists and those involved in music,
are the voices of the human soul.
- Art is an emotional expression of
a certain period in history and the legacies of artists are the story
tellers of the times they lived in.
- I am emotionally
passionate and I try
to convey the brilliance of a city with as much enthusiasm as a horse
race, or voice my feelings about indigenous peoples with the same depth as
a peaceful landscape.
- I never sketch my work, so I have
to transcend into the subject matter, and it is of no surprise to those
close to me, if I am ‘absent” while I linger in a world of my own and
reinforce the journey by reading related books or listening to
good example is a mural depicting fire. It was created in the middle of
winter. At the time my studio wasn’t heated and
when I started
working, I was dressed in a thick jumper. After a short while, I started
sweating and soon I was in a tank-top. My spiritual connection merged with
the subject and outside influences no longer affected me.
- I have been asked many times what inspired me to
create this unique technique, and the answer is quite simple: I love
leather, and I love to paint, and my art really is a merger of both,
although I never use color ...
- ... So my " Paints " are the dyed skins
available in the leather industry and
my “paint brushes” are scalpels, scissors and tweezers...
- I could probably go on and
speak of inspiration, technique and motivation, but introductions are
best kept short...
- I strongly
support animal welfare and honor all that lives, therefore I will not
work with ‘exotic’ skins of any type.
do accept commission work for specific areas and there are no size
of my work can be seen both Locally and Internationally. -
