“I migrated from Germany in 1955 and lived in Adelaide until 1995. I have always enjoyed figurative painting, and established myself as a portrait artist early in my career. I now live in Sydney and am currently teaching art at the Castle Hill Art Society. I also take students on art tours overseas. Colour is very important to me, I believe it influences our lives on many levels. I have studied many aspects of colour and this allows me to work intuitively with colour and the concepts of yin and yang, which are echoed in the strong relationship contrasts in my work.
“I exhibit at the Artsite Gallery in Camperdown, as well as in Castle Hill. I also love to paint other subject matter in a modern contemporary style in various media. Acrylics on canvas, watercolours and mixed media on paper. When painting portrait commissions I like to work from both life and photographs. I have won 75 prizes in various art shows since 1983; 25 of these were first prizes, and 50 second and commendations, including the Packer’s Prize at the 1993 Archibald Award show in Sydney.”
