Passenger pigeons, their abundance, and spectacular migration, nesting sites and extinction after all fascinated me since I`ve read about them for the first time.That one of the most common birds in the world became extinct in such a short period of time, it is one of the biggest crimes in human history.As an artist, I have no other possibility than to try to bring them back to life at least in my drawings and paitings.Attached a series of drawings I did lately, showing the birds in their daily activities..
the current exhibition about dogs and humans in art in Bavarian national museum. A
miniature portrait by the Austrian artist Waldmüller showing his son
with his dog dated in 1836. .And he pug dog of Count Brühl from Saxony created in porcelain in 1743.It was pretty difficult to work in the Museum
because of the low light.
Eurasian lynx , a painting I did 20 years ago, one of the most detailed I
ever done.. I was hoping to do more of this kind, but I realized soon
that there was no demand , at least in Germany, and decided to focus
almost exclusively on illustrations
