Painting, drawing, creative design and photography have been some of my favourite activities since my childhood.
Due to self experimentation and participation in creative workshops I got to know many different techniques (e. g. Encoustic Art, Alcoholic Ink, Acrylic Pouring etc.) which I am now combining.
Collages have always fascinated me, whether they have a realistic or surrealistic/abstract background.
Every artwork is the base for a new artwork. What does this mean?
I modify the original photo with the tools of a photo program, especially colour and light effects but also image details. The results are different pictures, showing the same scene but in a completely different mood.
Combining all these single photos in a new photo collage I receive an interesting pattern.
Besides the mixed material collages in the first step I also discovered that especially simple („boring“) things like a teapot or a salt shaker can be set into a completely new artificial scenery by colour and light effects and reveal an extraordinary pattern.
