Inspirationtrail Fauvicon TRANSP.png

A guesthouskeeper from Scarborough, south of Cape Town, became aware of my work and invited me to stay and paint pictures for his guesthouse. The topic was free, I was inspired by the imposing nature around the Cape of Good Hope and worked on site mainly with the sketchbook and my camera - and collected colored stones.

On my forays through the area, I soaked up all the colors - the rough landscape with its ice-cold sea lived from these extremely luminous moments, from the deep turquoise of the waves to the bright yellow ocher cliffs, the bright green of the flora and the dark red earth at the roadside.

From my first attempts to work with pigments in the 'Mountainpearls' series, the artist and sculptor Christian Aubry led me to my very own pigment production process.

The landscape then loudly invited me to collect my own colors!
