Artist's Statement
" "
The raison d’etre for my floral and landscape paintings can be traced directly to the influences that surrounded my early childhood. Born and raised in a small town in Austria near forests, glens and mountains, I was constantly seeking out the many varied kinds of floral beauty which is ever present in this land. During the summer months, in a high mountain lake enclosure, my siblings and I would make daylong forays into the forested areas solely to see what kinds of flowers we could encounter. A difficult find, but a most sought after one, was the edelweiss. This was so because one had to climb up the side of a mountain to see them growing as an outcropping in the rocks. This would become the trophy of the day! Another favored sight was the Christrose, commonly called the Schneerose or snow rose, because it could be seen popping up out of the snow cover on the ground.

In school I was always fascinated with any instrument be it pen, pencil or crayon, that could make anything from a strait line to a complicated image. I really never understood at the time why I had this strong attraction for art supplies, never could make the connection between it and my love of nature.

It wasn’t until I came to the United States and married that the association was made. A casual remark by my husband, that I had a natural talent and propensity to draw and paint, made me realize that I ought to get going. A starter paint kit was purchased and that’s the beginning of the story.

ARTIST STATEMENT

I paint the change and diversity of nature, capturing the beauty that
surrounds us: winter’s stark grays, the slow brightening of spring, bold
summer, and fall’s warm richness. The shapes of nature show their
diversity in my work, the flowing petals of flowers with the rugged
geometry of my native Austrian Alps.

Nature’s unending spectrum of color and shape, its seasons of hope and
renewal, are always fresh and exciting, and that is what I strive to
capture in my work.

When I paint, I hope to bring the beauty that surrounds around into
focus, and fix it on the canvas to brighten our lives. By connecting
with this beauty, I partake in the almost magical act of transforming
empty space, a plain white surface, into something captivating, a
painting that can be shared and enjoyed for years to come.
