"Coincidences, moments, dreams, ideas, desires, behavioral patterns, great moments, visions and mental images perceive, reflect, artistically represented and made visible in abstract or figurative artworks and are my motivation."

In 2012, Karin began working with oil paints in an abstract manner and in 2018 she decided to work in the art scene as Karin Sternberg as well as in the spiritual scene with the moniker Svenja Lunise.
"My life is exciting, diverse and full of contrast; being awake and dreaming. Very often it feels imposing and a desire for balance, harmony, for being there, for "being in one's center" is present. Life can never be fixed or held in positions. Everything is in flux and in constant transformation.
Coincidences, moments, events, dreams, ideas, desires, behavioral patterns, great moments, visions and mental images perceive, reflect, artistically represented and made visible in abstract or figurative artworks, are my motivation.
This means to consciously perceive, analyze, clearly see and recognize imbalances. Learning to let go of negative things. To focus on relaxation, balance, joy, serenity, lightness, empathy, love and harmony and to welcome this in my life and in the world.
I prefer to work with oil colors on canvas in various techniques and media, such as brush, throw, spatula, wipe and sponge technique."
