• About JP

    It's all about art.

    Turtle Vision Fine Art, Cologne Germany

    Once upon a time there was a little girl who loved to paint by numbers all day long. Years later, the little girl’s older brother taught her how to stretch and gesso canvas.


    The little girl now an adult, went to art school. There she learned everything about art history and painting. She even learned how to make oil paint and egg tempera. This made her very happy, happy as a clam.


    As time went on, she painted and painted and painted. She became influenced by the works of Helen Frankenthaler, Vassily Kandinsky and German Expressionism. It was at this point that she decided that painting and the art world would become her life, and it did.


    The rest is history.
