Painting is like silent poem, said Simonides, poet from ancient Greece.Paintings are icons, doors to the Platonian world above the heavens. Paintings on my blog are just those icons, which lead a viewer into the magic world of harmony and beauty. Artists who present their achievements on my blog have a very different cultural and national background, they represent variety of artistic traditions and schools
I studied art at Päd. Highschool, Münster, 1970-73 Until 2008 I was employed as a teacher. Since 2008 I work on my own. My main subject is painting with oil and Japanese ink: landscape, portrait and abstract composition.
