Work With Me
If you like what you see and would like to work with me, I would be happy to offer the following options:
I do not currently have a steady gallery representation. If you would like to show my paintings in your gallery, please feel free to contact me.
I do accept commissions. If you would like me to paint your portrait, maybe with your preferred pet, I’d be happy to hear from you. In an ideal world, I would paint it entirely from life in as many sessions as it may take. In a less perfect world, I would still need a bare minimum of one session for some quick studies and time to take my own photographs. I prefer not to rely on other photographer’s works; an exception to this would be a memory portrait of a deceased person or animal. (Another exception being the portraits I have done from reference material found on the Sktchy app – a fun social media platform where people post their photos in order to serve as inspiration for artists). I know exactly what I am looking for in reference photographs, which is why I prefer to take my own in order to find the best angle for your portrait.
If you have a particularly treasured possession, a lovely garden or real estate, I could envision painting still lives or landscapes on commission as well and would consider travelling to your destination. For more information about my technique, please read “How I work”.
If you dispose of a functioning infrastructure (studio space, guest rooms, transportation etc…) and would like me to host a workshop in your area, please contact me for details.
If you produce paint, brushes, easels, cameras and the like, I would be happy to offer you collaborations such as paintings, drawings or photographs for your brochures, test reviews of the material, workshops, demonstrations etc. etc…
I love movies, books and theatre plays. So if you were a director needing paintings for your next movie or play, or an editor in need of a cover illustration for your newest novel, then I would be more than pleased to work with you. Being fond of painting frills, too, if you were a fashion or jewelry designer and would like me to paint some of your frocks or baubles, then please come hither;)…
More recently, I have been working on illustrations as well as paintings, focussing especially on drawing people, florals/botanicals and animals. I would be very happy to consider collaborations for editorials, home decor, paper goods and fabric design.
If you are staying in Munich and would like to sit for me, please contact me for details. I am often on the lookout for interesting faces and new, friendly muses.
I might consider teaching private lessons on a rather short-term basis. An arrangement such as you sitting for portraits in exchange of me teaching is conceivable.
