Originally from Austria, I started my long creative journey 25 years ago in Sri Lanka.
As a self-taught artist I kept on painting and travelling for some years until I found in Mexico my creative home base.
The majority of my images are born out of an automatic painting technique.
"Automatism refers to creating art without conscious thought, accessing material from the unconscious mind"
During my symbolic period, I painted with water colors and crayons on paper, followed by a long fascination with oils on canvas.
This period includes therapeutic releases, first screams in color and inner & outer travel logs.
The colorDrops series from 2014 mark the beginning of my abstract works in mixed media. This current period includes socio-political pieces about liberty, multiculturalism, ecocide, division & unity, raising the age old question about the artist's role as a moral compass.
