Born in Berlin in 1969. Educated in art and fashion design in Germany and England. Since 2000 living and working on the island Mjörn, Tjörn municipality.

My pictures grow for a long time. This is SLOW ART and reflection. I apply one coat of oil paint after another. Then I take the liberty to partially and purposefully destroy these layers. The result is an attractive surface.

I paint streams, trees, meadows, rivers, lakes and seas and again trees that connect heaven and earth.
The pictures are probably already there before they are manifested by me with oil paint on canvas. It's like they just wanted to be visible again through me.
It paints through me. My pictures do not tell a story. They are full of inexplicable details. They explain themselves and reflect a deep sense of belonging to the whole. The pictures are a part of life itself.
My best pictures are created by playful accident. It is the result of years of daily exercise.

Minaworks are created in an attempt to visualize images that we all carry within us. A memory from childhood, from a perfect day or something unbelievably nice that was seen yesterday. My images evoke the memory of an unforgettable imprinted moment, an unforgettable moment in time with the most beautiful light. A state of happiness. There are pictures, which when you see them, you think you have been there, so familiar and well known. When I can awaken this emotional memory in a viewer, my image is complete.

The surface of the painting is as individual as the face of a person who has lived a long happy life. My motifs are universal, greatly reduced poetic elements. My pictures are reminiscent of a landscape that is on the borderland between object-related style and abstract image construction.

I write poems in color. The goal is that the viewer does not get lost, but instead finds a home with himself.
