My Rose Garden – new print series available!
Last year in June I was bewitched by the roses blooming so extraordinarily abundantly – even the Pentecost Roses were still in full bloom!
My mind was busy preparing for a hospital stay, not really in my best shape, but the roses were such a visual and emotional delight! I took lots of photos and as I couldn’t go to a studio, I did some digital work on my iPad. Now, after more than half a year, I am making this series available as giclée prints. I am happy that it is finally done and I can show them to you. They will bring the summer into your home even in winter! They are really wonderful!
“Your art makes my heart warm and happy and my mind full of imagination“
“What an explosion of beauty and vitality! Not being an artist myself I can’t believe you had all these beautiful things inside you, that you could bring to life . It is the magic of inspiration and talent.”
“Really wonderful paintings. I admire everyone who can use colours so expressively.”
How it all began….
“colourful abstracts for creative and free spirits”
More than 20 years I have an intensive relationship with colours and canvas. From the very beginning I did bold, free, expressive and very colourful works, neglecting many rules of fine art painting. I needed this freedom on the canvas as a contrast to my professional life as a consultant in the corporate world which was full of goals and perfection . Painting became an urgent necessity to save my emotional life and my urgent longing for beauty. Beauty had no place in the rigidities of the corporate life. My colours talk of tenderness, vitality and freedom, of energy and enjoying life in every moment.
I started rather from the beginning to exhibit. Since then I have been showing in many shared and single exhibition in Germany and Spain. If you want to have a view click here.
“I absolutely enjoyed Gerrit’s ‘Update on an artists life’, my goodness she’s a talented lady, her art work is excellent, and her writing so fluid and exciting. Her narrative is so inviting so creative you really warm to the person. She creates a wonderful picture of the exit from “ lockdown “ in Spain. Your masterpiece is beautiful, the colours, shapes so vibrant.”
