ABOUT THE ARTIST

International Artist - - Master Painters Of The World -

I was born in Koblenz, Ger­many, in 1963, and cur­rently live and work in Greens­boro, North Carolina. Draw­ing and paint­ing have been my pas­sion since early child­hood. Study­ing any­thing about Old Mas­ter painters I could get my hands on, I was es­pe­cially drawn to artists like Bri­ton Riv­ière, Eugène Joseph Ver­boeck­hoven and Ge­orge Stubbs, just to name a few. The in­cred­i­bly de­tailed and au­then­tic work they pro­duced af­fected how I wanted to paint.

An­i­mals— es­pe­cially horses—have al­ways been my fa­vorite sub­jects. Pri­mar­ily work­ing from own ref­er­ence pho­to­graphs, but also from clients’ pho­tos, I am con­stantly seek­ing to cap­ture the sub­ject’s essence. Mostly self-taught, but in­spired and sup­ported by my like­wise ar­tis­ti­cally tal­ented father, I’m con­stantly striv­ing to im­prove my re­al­is­tic style, prefer­ably ex­pressed through acrylic and oil on can­vas or other me­dia.

My work was in­cluded in nu­mer­ous ex­hi­bi­tions in the U.S. and Ger­many. I am also part of a group of artists that formed the Coali­tion of Artists for the Recog­ni­tion of En­dan­gered species, CARE. We are or­ga­niz­ing spe­cific shows to raise aware­ness of en­dan­gered species and do­nate a por­tion of our pro­ceeds to zoos com­mit­ted to pre­serv­ing en­dan­gered an­i­mal species. Cur­rently the Am­ble­side Gallery in Greens­boro rep­re­sents my art.
