She often uses acrylic paint on canvas – sometimes under wax. Abstract pictures – often female subjects – carry her unmistakable signature. She often uses the colours red and pink, which she expertly employs especially in her female motifs. She also abstracts cityscapes in her own personal style – especially her home city of Hamburg.
