”It was the large ears of a hare that first inspired me to start my series of watercolor wildlife paintings. I had never painted animals before, but one day I saw a picture. It was a brown hare – and the ears were just so intriguing. I knew the ears especially would be amazing in watercolor. Since then it was clear, that I should make a series of wildlife paintings.
And, although I never imagined to become an entrepreneur, it happened that I started my print business. Later I painted a series of delicate depictions of the fragile local flora, and paintings depicting the landscape of the North.”
