My name is Ulrike Taucher, I was born in the state Styria in Austria in 1959 and have lived in Vienna for more than 40 years. Painting and photography are my passion.
As a painter I am a career changer, a newcomer as a self-taught artist. I started painting in August 2019 after finishing my commercial career. Since that moment I really began to fully concentrate on my passion to work creatively, painting has become part of my life. My pictures are stories that life writes in all its colorful facets. I work in my art studio, where I immerse myself in the world of colors, fantasy, creativity to compose my pieces. I am constantly seeking for new ways of expression and love to use explosive colors. I find inexhaustible sources of inspiration in nature, on trips, among people and from artists, the great masters and their artwork.
I prefer to paint with acrylics on linen and watercolors. My motivation is the intuitive and emotional expression with color. To connect with the heart and paint from within sets processes in motion that are sensual, powerful and touching. Being creative is a gift. I love to transform reality with my imagination and to bring out the essential and the emotion. Nothing offers more freedom than expressing one's thoughts, visions and emotions through art. It’s a kind of meditation. You can dive into another world, forget reality for a moment and focus on the positivity and joy of life which live in my paintings.
