She was born in Germany and lived most of her adult life in Hamburg before moving to the United States in September 2013. She now lives in Jersey City, NJ.

“For the last decade I have been exploring the possibilities of creating dimension and texture by layering different materials and paint media. I have worked in art journals and on canvas, incorporating collage and found objects.

DefragmentedJC
For me, creating art is a dialogue between my skills and the supplies I use. It is not so much a battle as an ongoing attempt to work out the connections between ideas and techniques.

LaBocaNatKalbach
In my mixed media canvases I emphasize urban subject matter, especially gentrification. I depict the vibrancy as well as the decay that I see in the cities around me from multiple viewpoints, represented by layering and tactile dimension.”

On the podcast we discuss the more than decade long friendship Nathalie and I share…

081: Listener Mail

 

Mom and I are doing our best to get back into the podcast swing of things.  We’ve been podcasting since 2012 (6 YEARS!!!) but we’re not great about frequency.  This will be just our sixth podcast in 2018.  (Note to self: put podcast in calendar as a “to do.”)  All of that said, today’s podcast is a particularly good one, because it’s a conversation with YOU! We chose a few of the awesome comments you’ve left to share and discuss.

Mom and I would also love it if you would take a few minutes to take this four question survey about the podcast and why you do or don’t listen to it.  Should take you less than one minute to complete.

Thank you for your time!

Finally, a quick reminder that I’ve got a bunch of teaching gigs coming up:

September 22-23: I’ll be at The Ink Pad in NYC.
