Multi media photographer
Eva’s imagery: A reflection of a personal journey. I am a German national who moved to England in 1993. I am happily settled here with my husband, daughter and a range of rescue animals living in our garden. For most of my life artistic work has been essential to me. From childhood until early adulthood my drawings & paintings have been inspired by internal forces including imagination, emotions, dreams and desires. I used art as a means of self-expression, story-telling and to work through experiences of abuse and trauma. At one point in my life I had to have a break from art, psychology and self-analysis. I needed to start to look outward instead of inward. I studied law and criminology and ended up with a PhD in socio-legal studies. My artistic approach used in recent times reflects the healing & maturing that has taken place within me. Inspiration nowadays comes from the outside world – mainly nature, animals and natural light. My working ethos is explorative and experimental, sometimes I am amazed where it takes me. However, the end-product is always a photography, whether I start off with a drawing, a nature collage or something that has caught my eye. Once I have created a photographic image I digitally modify it until I am satisfied with its light, colour, composition and atmosphere. I usually create a set of matching images which I relate to a theme or story line. Some of these include inner journey, mysterious landscapes, sensual garden, death and rebirth, the lightness of being, in the land of the snow queen and cinema world. It is not possible to exhibit all my work on this page, but I include some of my earlier images. Please do not hesitate if you have any questions regarding any aspects of my work. Feel free to contact me if you are interested in using an image for a non-commercial purpose, such as a blog or online poetry. Thank you for visiting, Eva.
