One of my favorite artists is Paul Klee (1879-1940), with his colorful, dreamlike paintings. These days I am very much interested in his many angels and I have created a series of homages of these angels. The angels do not resemble my picture book illustration collage style or Klee’s style. They are made of materials I find in my studio, as well as paint and cardboard, aluminum and fabric.

I also love the work of Pieter Brueghel (1525-1569), who painted peasants and landscapes of central Europe that remind me of where I grew up in Germany.

There is so much wonderful art in the world. If you are interested in Picasso, Matisse, Klee, Brueghel, Léger and other artists, you can find their work in museums and in art books and on the Internet.
