Born in 1957 I studied Graphics and Photography in Düsseldorf. In 1998 I completed a further education for Art Therapy at the Institute for Humanistic Psychology (IHP) in Eschweiler, Germany. For many years I worked with children, handicapped people and adults in educational and therapeutic institutions in Germany, Holland and Great Britain. I always put the main focus on self-expression, joy and inspiration.
From 2008 til 2018 I lived most of the year in Morayshire, Scotland, working with Landart along the stunning coasts and rivers. Now I concentrate on sharing this beautiful Artform in my home-country and opened my Nature-Art-Gallery "Naturkunstinsel Alberode" in Central Germany. I share my work and vision in workshops, exhibitions and Nature events throughout Europe.
Photography is another important part of my art. I freeze a little moment. The right timing in combination with patience and flexibility is a valuable assumption. The never ending coming and going, creating and letting go again - the transience and unpredictable changeability in Nature is a very charming aspect of my artwork.
“My work is an attempt to bring a sense of stillness to those natural dynamics of rivers and tides that swirl and flow around me - enhancing them with patterns, creations that reflect both Nature’s subtle simplicity and also its complexity of shape and form - and then set them into landscapes where I hope their presence will enhance the already natural beauty of their settings."
