"Sweet Dreams: Strawberry Cream Cake" is a bright, colourful abstract painted on craft paper (300 gsm). The colours - pink, red and rose tones accented with turquoise, blue and green - are applied in a loose, spontaneaus style and combined with pencil and / or charcoal drawings. The colour is applied with brushes and palette knife. The natural colour of the craft paper is visible and an interesting part of the painting.
The painting has to be framed, the frame on the photographs is only an example how it looks like in a frame (in this case it is a dark stone grey metal frame). It has a standard size, so that you easily can frame it with. You can use a passe-partout, but as you see on the photographs it also looks nice without a passe-partout.
Mixed media (acrylic, pencils, charcoal). Signed on the front and signed and dated on the back of the work.
70 x 50 x 0,1 cm (27.6 x 19.7 in).

I find my inspirations in colours and materials - for example in a beautiful deep turquoise mountain lake or in the washed-out grey of concrete in a city. Based on such impressions and inspirations I commence my work and my artwork often comes to life in little series. Each painting is unique and the creation and development of each painting is a time consuming and slow process, usually lasting many weeks and in some cases up to a few months.
My paintings are acrylic mix paintings, for example, acrylic paint with charcoal, oil pastels, pencils, spray paint and many other artistic materials. I often combine these materials with natural materials and objects from nature (e.g., leaf seeds) as well as with ash, sand or building materials such as grout or plaster.
My pieces of art are created informally. Each step builds on the previous step, leaving room for chance but also for corrections and erasures, until the final finished artwork has evolved as a composition of colour, shape, texture and surface.
Due to the complexity of my paintings and the interplay of (collage) materials, my works are not simply one-dimensional, rather they entice the viewer not just to explore them with their eyes but also to touch them.
My works of art are informal; they are my personal expressions of my experiences and impressions and each piece of art is truly unique and only one of its kind.
