"I started my artistic career in 1980 as a poet and songwriter. At that time I was looking for a balance to my work as a shipbuilder and crane operator in the Port of Hamburg. I wrote port poems, sea shanties, children's songs, chansons, rock and pop, and published 4 volumes of lyrical poetry. In search of new artistic challenges, I discovered my talent for abstract painting on the computer (digital painting) in 1999. I tried to use the mouse like a paintbrush and with a lot of joy in experimenting I gradually succeeded in creating my own, unmistakable painting style. “Visual poetry” - this is the best way to describe the style. Every art has its time and I understand the computer as a suitable medium for my feelings to translate thoughts and fantasies. It is the fascination in a creative symbiosis of man and machine to discover new possibilities in art. The universe of my soul wants to wander through in search of ever new shape and color."
