Born and raised in Germany, my husband and I moved to the Washington DC area in 1986. Today I have a studio in both countries where I paint mostly landscapes and cityscapes in oil and sometimes pastels. I painted from an early age, but began painting in earnest only until my late 50’s. After a successful career as lawyer, researcher and international justice reform expert that took me around the globe, I decided a more balanced, creative approach to life was needed. Since then I have painted with several well-known American artists, such as Glen Kessler, Diane Tessler, Greg Kessler, Ted Reed, Fred Markham, Jill Banks, Adrienne Kralik, and Patrick Kirwin. I have a law degree and Ph.D, from the University of Hamburg, Germany, and am completing a certificate course in International World Art History at the Smithsonian Institute. I participate in regional, national and international art exhibitions, art fairs and plein air competitions; I am part of different art associations, have exhibited in several galleries in the Washington DC area. Recently, one of my paintings was chosen competition winner in a national juried completion held by the Contemporary Gallery.

Impressionists, especially Claude Monet, Edgar Degas and Mary Cassatt, and Max Liebermann, have long been my favorite painters. Their use of color, light and shadow, as well as the fact that their beautiful paintings broke with was then considered high quality art, is what inspired me to try something similar in our times. Equally influential and shaping my style are more recent realism painters, especially Edward Hopper and Andrew Wyeth. As a result, my style is modern impressionism with a touch of realism. Following the techniques of the old masters and impressionists, the aim of my art is to create reflective impressions of the world around us, using an element of humor, when applicable. The counterpoints of light and shadow, contrasting colors, is often central in my work, sometimes to show harmony, sometimes to depict contrast and different views.
