Whether Anke is writing, passing stories or painting, it is all about transforming a mess into a raw beauty that transcends the mundane. Inspired by meetings with ‘real people with real stories’, she creates art projects.
By interviewing a core group or by organizing workshops she invites people to be part of her creative proces and thus she stays tuned with the source of her inspiration. Anke’s painting is raw, intuitive and free. It moves between conscious technique and subconscious response.
With her book ‘ Women In Gold’ Anke brings us into the intimate conversations that reveal stories otherwise hidden from the world. A hardcover of 192 pages, nine life stories of powerful women, a cocktail of colorful illustrations and scattered poetry.
Anke is passionate about organizing events on different locations where people connect through art and where stories about elegant power are passed.
With her seasonal Art updates she reveals to us the artist’s soul. The one intimately connected with the moment that surrounds her. And she embraces it. No blogging, but an e-mail once a season plenty with snippets of color and poetry to ‘take a minute’ and breathe as she always starts her writings.
