Why I paint...
Life is beautiful. Extremely beautiful!
But life did not quite go as I expected. I lost myself. I lived someone else's life. The way I was taught. I learned the hard way that what fits others isn't necessarily right for me.
So I set off on a quest to find myself. Because life just didn't add up any longer. The perfect picture was not perfect at all. I failed to settle for following the opinions of others. Where had this energetic, imaginative, lively and colourful girl gone to? The world suddenly seemed so gray, occasionally even black and white ... Something had to change.
I went back to my first passion: painting and drawing. Without any kind of plan I bought paint, brushes, pallet knives and canvasses. My priority was to bring colour back into my own life. I started to paint again, from the heart, driven by a lot of enthusiasm and a flow. With an incredible need for expression!
I would classify my work as intuitive abstract expressionism. Intuitive, because I literally start from a blank canvas, without a plan. Abstract, because I want to put things into perspective. Expressive, because I want to tell my story and I want to inspire. It seems that colours allow me to say much more than words ever could. My paintings also act as a mirror for the audience. If you do not feel anything when you take a look at my paintings, then that is fine too. Everyone has their personal view on life. Let the things in which you find resonance reach and affect you. What matters most is that you feel good about a painting. Creating it already made me feel good. So if those two feelings match it means I have told my story to the right person.
And that's why I paint. I want to guide you on how to continuously add colour to your life. I want you to be happy. I want to perk up your space. I want you to think. I want you to feel. I want to trigger your senses...
And as for me, I am being myself.
I BE ME (L)!
Because that truly is freedom.
I hope I can inspire you!
With words, with a smile, with a quote, with my perspective and perhaps, one day, with a painting!
