About Kathrin Flöge
All kinds of images have always had a strong appeal for me. Even briefly perceived images in everyday life could enrich my day immensely, but sometimes also lead to a kind of sensory overload. This is probably one of the reasons why I have always been drawn to nature, surrounded by beautiful pictures that I could simply enjoy. At home, near Bremen in the north of Germany, I then began to paint and draw, driven by the impressions that fascinated me: often my self-built tree houses, the fields behind our house, animals or flowers, and always the sea!
After graduating from high school, I studied art and French in Bremen and have been working in the teaching profession since 1994. As a balance to school life, however, I no longer considered creating pictures after my studies, but rather my second great passion, classical music and playing the piano. And I was amazed that the sensitivity for sounds I acquired in piano lessons enhanced my sensitivity for colour tones.
With the first lock-down in 2020, I began to paint intensively again: to please other people, I painted their favourite places and gave them away. This was followed by a few smaller exhibitions in some Hamburg doctors' surgeries and some international successes with online galleries.
In the meantime there are various opportunities for solo exhibitions in the Hamburg.
