My name is Carola Matthes. I live in beautiful Schleswig-Holstein (the North of Germany), love the north, the typical atmosphere and all the weather here!

I like to be in a good mood, interested in new things, enthusiastic about the unusual, fascinated by reality, quite impatient, often egotistical, constantly confused, very stubborn, almost always happy, hardly optimistic, usually too loud, easily irritable, .... all in all: very emotionally flexible!

I have not studied art, but I am not unskilled either. Nowadays one says then yes: I am autodidact! Because of me also that! The painting is from my life simply not to be imagined and also not to be cleared away.

In meiner Kunst bin ich furchtlos …
... because I don't want to lock myself and my images into fears, plans or fixed ideas.
