Her work has evolved from the abstract and optical energy fields influences of the 1960s through later study of the Old Master’s technique with Ernst Fuchs, to her current unique visionary alphabet that has lately included computer, digital paintings.
Nurtured by Psychedelic Art, European Fantastic Realism, Surrealism and Science Fiction, her art points to an inner process, a chemical visual interaction were the inner self’s, messages are deciphered through images and symbols taking the viewer into an edgy realm of realism and unnamable forms.
On the wings of improvisation free flowing images and color create associations to uncover a mysterious universe.
Ancient icons, space-age imagery with metaphysical overtones, that reveal an evolutionary flowering , nature and its organisms populated into myriad of forms.
Her work has shown in galleries and private collections in Europe and America and has been cited in many books and publications. She is also an independent curator and has curated numerous international exhibitions.
Paintings are poetic apparitions where the world is the kindling consuming fire for the soul. I paint images as if they exist in front of my eyes, dreaming up forms and entire environments, a mysterious dreamland where shapes have no name and space has no reason, liberated from everyday imprinting, floating in a realm of pure imagination. Petrification and decomposition of matter is part of the pictorial search, a penetration on the cellular level extraxcting a meaning that infuses all things.
