Cellardyke KY10 3AX
Painting, printing, multi-media
There is no street sign at the Harbourhead: it is the little street with just four houses and some flower tubs at the top end of the harbour in Cellardyke. There are two ENOS venues here. Our house, number 4, is the very last one before the pier and the steps that lead down to the rocky beach below. Go through the wee blue gate into my garden. It is full of bits and pieces that interest me and includes the bench where I do most of my summer work. I display my work in my front room.
I was born and brought up in Lippe, North-West Germany. After school I studied Kunsterziehung (Education and Art) in Bielefeld. On graduating I turned my attention to teaching art to primary children and put my own art work on the back burner. I moved with my Scottish husband over thirty years ago and settled in the East Neuk of Fife.
Vibrant translucent colour and abstracted form inspire my pastel, watercolour and acrylic paintings. A loose approach integrates experimental and printing techniques, flowers, inner and outer landscapes and paraphernalia around me. This year’s work includes watercolours, ink drawings, pastels, mono and block prints, cards, clay objects and objets trouvés.
