ATMOSPHERIC ABSTRACT ARTIST

Based in Lake Country
British Columbia
Canada

Anke was born in Limburg, Germany and lived in various parts of Germany before moving to British Columbia in 2000. She began to explore her love of art and painting in 2001 through workshops and open studio classes at Emily Carr University in Vancouver and other local art studios, although she is primarily self-taught. Initially residing on the West Coast, she has now settled in the beautiful Okanagan Valley. 

HerSTORY

Before expressing herself in art, Anke was drawn to the sciences like mathematics, physics, and astronomy.

After studying Computer Science, she worked as a software engineer in Germany and now as a web designer in Canada. Living in the digital world of ‘0’ and ‘1’, true and false, power-on and power-off had a big impact on her. This extreme contrast of the analytical and creative also reflects in her artwork by challenging both sides of her brain pushing the limits of her tools and materials.

Intuitive Infusion

Directly responding to our surrounding universe, she uses every day celestial experiences like the moon cycle or other astronomical constellations as a starting point. The creative process begins with laying out the gilded surface and feeling where the elements that obscure the pure golden or silver light are going to live. 

By painting intuitively with the help of tarot cards,  oracle cards and aura connection mists a sense of magic is infused into the application.

The title of the artwork also reflects the intuitive process and usually consists of two words starting with the same letter to manifest the connection of the written word to the atmospheric artwork. 

It is intended that the viewer is left with a feeling of peace, love and support.
