I always feel attracted to work with wood and to include it into my artistic work. Here are a few examples.
From 2000-2005 I painted roses in all sizes and colours on large canvases.
I had the intention to create a symbol for the blooming of feminine, the feminine principle. This was corresponding to my own expansion, but also very relevant too, of what society becomes more and more aware of.
After having painted for about half a year these roses, I realized a certain similarity with the female genital, the vagina, sanskrit: YONI.
And so I decided, to walk my path of art consequently and began painting yonis (more information next artcle).
The painting ‘Rosen/Yoni -Mandala’ grasps my intention perfectly :
The white rose symbolises the Goddess, in whom all women, the whole feminine have their roots, being held and safe and receiving their strength from there…
To each yoni belongs a rose, showing her state of blooming.

This serie in oil on canvas, pastells on paper has been created from 2003-2004.
The four elementals plus ether are the foundation of our existance on earth.
When considering the artistic representaion of the elements, I realized, that the animals are completely induldged with the specific element, they live in, yes, even the animals make the elements come alive!
And so it occured, that I showed the four elements by painting the animals, that are habitant of those.
