"With mostly strong colors I’m able to express my various impressions and ideas. My pictorial language mainly consists of a figurativeness reduced to the essential into which I ornamental transfer very harmonious forms."
"Working in tourism since 1970, I lived overseas and travelled around in Europe, America, Asia and Africa (spending 11 years in Kenya). For the last 22 years, I lived in Palma de Mallorca, Spain and now I’m back in Germany. I get inspired by everything that is surrounding me – art, books, culture, traditions, pictures, textiles, exhibitions, events, colors, light, sea, beach, sunrise and sunset, animals, landscapes, seasons, nature, plants and flowers, daily news – the list is neverending.
Travelling so much has left its marks on my art. Especially the colors and the smell of Africa and Asia are deeply in my memory.
I had great fun with the illustrations that I was able to create in 2017 for a children's book ("Toni on a journey of discovery and other exciting animal stories") by Edition Kalliope.
My artworks – Pepponi Art - are now part of private collections worldwide, such as Germany, Spain, Switzerland, United Kingdom, United States, India and Australia.
In recent years, my works have been shown in various exhibitions in Germany, USA and Spain, including Kunstverein Fulda, Vonderau Museum Fulda, Art in barns, Lich, Germany, Miami SCOPE Art Show Florida and Times Square New York, USA, Clinica Picasso and Casa Creativa Mallorca in Spain. My works are published in various art publications. I participate in various art competitions and have received several awards."
