The Danish painter Liza Krügermeier is inspired by a never-ending exploration of colour, light and shadow. Her vivid colour palette was shaped and formulated during a 5-year residency on the Greek island of Leros, where the strong light presents the eye with bright colours and highly contrasting shadows.
Now, her dynamic style reflects a blend of Scandinavia and the memorised senses of the Mediterranean. While her work mostly features interiors as well as personal and well-known objects, she also touches upon landscapes and portraits. Her use of colour and original shaping of shadows and patterns always transforms the ordinary into something new and special.

Born in Wesport (CT) into an artistic family, today Jennifer resides in Litchfield, CT where she keeps her studio and workshop, just a short distance from the city that provided her early artistic attraction and inspiration.
Among Jennifer’s signature works are her vibrant “drips” or color streams, which in a gravity-driven process integrate line after line, layer after layer of different hues into evocative striped canvases that are rich, vibrant and undeniably textural. This same commanding play of color and texture evolves dramatically in her abstract landscapes and mosaic creations as well. Always drawing the viewer into a world of surprising world of light, color, texture and unexpected elements.

Sabine is a passionate watercolourist and lecturer in watercolour for more than 20 years. As a watercolourist, she has mastered the craft so perfectly that hand and brush move over the paper as if by themselves. The paintings she has created go far beyond the pure image and find their own way of expression. Achieving this has been her challenge and greatest pleasure every time.
On this path, she has accompanied and always inspired numerous students as her students are inextricably linked to my paintings. Sabine also teaches in cultural workshops, homes for the elderly and art academies and is happy to pass on her skills to anyone who would like to accompany her on her artistic path.
