Interests and Personality

BiographyShort Bio: born in 1949, I have lived since 1969 in Berlin/Germany, Diploma in Political Science and Ph.D. in Economics. Up to 1997 I spent about 2/3 of my professional life on research, writing books and teaching, and 1/3 of it producing art. In 1983/4 and 1987-1991 I lived in the USA (Harvard/MA and UNC/NC). 9 years ago I decided to make producing art my main activity and I started to market it. Around the same time I began using the computer as my main drawing tool. I use a PC and a graphic tablet and most of the time "Painter" (Fractal Design/Metacreations/Corel).

Hi, You have a very interesting style of art, colourful and quite busy. I see a bit of Terry Gilliam in there too. Nice work. Karen

Hi! Listen, I have about 6 months to prepare for my first solo show, and I was hoping you could assist me. I will need to have at least 30 paintings to display. If you could, with as much honesty as possible, please name 2 of my completed pieces that you feel I should definitely show. Also, please share 3 things with me, based on my current work, (remember be honest), that you would recommend to me for improving my art in general. I am fine if you post this on my public board because it may be interesting to others. The feedback from other artist on this website is very valuable to me. Thanks! ~Marianne

Hello Bjoern thanks for adding me as a friend.Lovely work. Viagra falls is my favourite.

had a lovely visit in 'x-ray' and glad 'the original' is not a 'holy' object but yet another diving board.

love your work, reminds me a little of kandinsky. Beautiful coulors and delicate touch.
