My name is Kirsten Schankweiler. I am an contemporary abstract artist based in Mainz, Germany.  I have been painting full time since 2011.

Nature is the inspiration for my abstract paintings. I love to work with materials, colors and layers. My paintings are an expression of emotions, experiences, thoughts and dreams. Starting with a basic sense of color and composition each layer guides the next. Every layer leaves his own marks as a part of progression. It’s a creative discovery guided by my inner voice and my intuition.

My intention is to create paintings that are truthful and real, paintings with depth and harmonic vibration, paintings that are compelling from a distance and up close. Viewers are invited to experience the interaction of colors and structures, the overall expression of the artwork.​

Thank you for being here.

For any questions or enquiries, please feel free to contact me.
