mamamalt means Mom paints

First of all it started with a gimmick of words, somehow I liked it.

It is not meant a special kind of painting because of being Mom.

My children inspire me and show me again and again the sunny sides of life.

I am very grateful to them for this.

So my heart lead me back to art and painting.

When being asked what Mom works, my children answer:

Mom paints..

Painting is for me a wonderful chance to be near to myself.

Together with my children I make all the funny and crazy things.

Manchmal habe ich das Gefühl, nicht mehr zu spüren, wer ich selbst eigentlich bin.

Expressing myself in a creative way makes me feel like

"being at home"

in line with myself.

Painting heals me - ART IS GOOD.

"Having imagination does not mean to come up with something.

It means to create something new from the things that are given."

(quotation from Th. Mann)
