Carina Kramer - The Artist

Hello!

I AM CARINA...

and I am fascinated by wildlife. That seems quite obvious, but I really mean it! Everything about those beautiful creatures from anatomy and behaviour to the sounds they make captivates me.

In my artwork I am seeking to express that deep admiration and weave it into a delicate and light picture of what I see.

 

My work is always realistic, so that my audience – yes, that´s you - can relate and get a glimpse of the marvelling appreciation I find myself in.

 

When I paint wildlife, I feel like part of the wilderness rushes through me leaving me in an admiring, peaceful and curious mood. That process is often reflected in the style and the brushstrokes I use. Especially in my oil paintings there seem to be areas of painterly excitement and others, which I approached in a more gentle manner. My watercolours on the other hand require a very soft and patient attitude since they involve a lot of thin and delicate layers.
