A native of Berlin, Germany, I moved to Taos in 2006.
Iâ€™ve been visiting Berlinâ€™s varied museums and enjoying the art of many centuries throughout my childhood and I was always drawn to paintings. Inspired by the Impressionists I started studying and painting in my early twenties. Canvas and brushes went into storage when life demanded my time and attention in other areas. Grandma Mosesâ€™ late start as artist was motivation to pick up the brushes again in later years. I feel fortunate to have met wonderful artists and generous teachers along the way.
Growing up surrounded by a city landscape, I yearned to be in nature. Taos offers it in abundance. I found my dream.
"Since moving to Taos I am able to translate some of what makes every new day exciting and full of promise onto canvas. The colors, sweeping vistas and ever changing light of the Southwest, are a constant inspiration."
