Heidemarie Herb


My creations are inspired by the relationship between man and nature in all its possibilities: colours evoking feelings and thoughts, sounds, the life cycle from birth to death, mysteries and secrets concealed by nature. Movements, the play of various forms, lightness and colours in harmony with each other are important in each of my works.  I like to awaken senses and mind, to conjure feelings and emotions. My works are there to be looked at, to experience, to make you think and to share.
