My artistic focus is drawing. In order not to get lost in the details, I first chose the monotype, which required a loose, unencumbered line. By producing monotypes in which a paint roller rolls out the required. Color and transfers it to paper or canvas, the "roller painting" developed."
Renate Kirchhof was born and raised in Berlin. She studied Graphic Design at the Berlin University of the Arts with Prof. Wolfgang Ludwig and Hans Förtsch. Graphic tasks were taken over, exhibition stands were designed and realized. This was followed by studies in Pedagogy as well as free drawing and painting. After years of changing moves within Germany and The Netherlands, a long stay followed in Worpswede, a small artist village in North Germany with its own gallery and permanent exhibitions, before returning to studying Pedagogy as well as free Drawing and Painting. Before finally returning to Berlin, Kirchhof had a car accident where she broke her right arm. After restoration, the 2nd phase of her artistic practice began.
