I have been working exclusively in watercolor for almost twenty years. What fascinates me most about this technique is the delicacy of the colors and
the low possibility of correction in the painting. My topic is young people who look to the future with questioning eyes. My goal is to show their vulnerability. Although the people I portray live in the present, my painting is influenced by the Italian Renaissance. The clear and delicate colors, especially in frescoes, inspire me again and again. I like working with random methods and stamps because the result always surprises me.
Ursula was born in Gliwice in 1962, Poland. Her parents belonged to the German minority because their birthplace became Polish in 1945.
Even as a child, painting and drawing were among her favourite pastimes. Her parents, who were also artistically gifted, encouraged her talent. In 1976, the family left Poland and moved to relatives in Braunschweig, Germany.
After graduating from high school, Ursula studied painting and art history at the Braunschweig University of Fine Arts with Prof. Malte Sartorius and Prof. Lienhard von Monkiewitsch.
She tried out various techniques until she discovered her love of watercolour about twenty years ago.
Ursula lives and works in Braunschweig.
