About the Artist
Hello, I'm happy to see you at my web side. Yes, I'm a self taught artist born and raised in Germany. I got my love and talent for arts and crafts from my father Fritz who loved to paint pictures for friends and family. I always loved to work with my hands and design things. I met my husband while he was in the U.S.Army. When we were stationed in Bamberg, I joined the arts and crafts center. There I applied for a job as a teacher for Bauernmalerei, but was hired as an assistant director. I opened classes for silk screening, silk painting, stain glass art and Bauernmalerei. While I was there, I met a nice elderly immigrant from Poland who taught me copper embossing.
Then my husband got ordered stateside. He retired to his native state Florida, where we still reside.
In 1993, I designed and built my house to enable me to care for elderly people 24/7. My relaxation time was when I painted my kitchen cabinets, tiled floors with my design, or pained them.
In 2009 I started back on my copper embossing. My husband and my son are involved with bees, thus I did my first copper embossing with designs of beekeepers, flowers and bees. I entered my art at the Florida beekeepers event and won first prize and best of show.
Today, I have some select art pieces in several art studios around my area. I also do private orders for businesses with their logos. I'm fond of landscape and wildlife pictures and of course bees.
I hope you will enjoy looking at some of my art and might want me to do a special design for you. Thanks for stopping by and giving me some of your time
