As a colorist painter with an extensive background in art history and painting techniques, I search for a balanced interaction between color, shape and material. Main sources of inspiration are the ever-changing light on the sea and the essence of nature. My paintings are reflections of my journeys as well as expressions my profound interest in Daoist and Buddhist philosophy.
Studies of traditional Chinese painting at the China Academy of Art in Hangzhou, have expanded my repertoire by exploring the fusion of Western and Chinese techniques, materials and compositions. Born in Vienna I consider myself a humanist cosmopolitan.
