“This is what my heart beats for.”

after the death of my mother.  It was hot and dry- the ideal climate for roses.

In my rose garden, the roses were in full bloom. Exactly in such moments, the strongest memories of my mother come back, of the common rose passion and of our most important moments.
That summer I began to paint a special rose picture, with roses, from my mother’s garden.


This picture has a special place in our apartment today and I am reminded almost daily of the buzzing of the bees, the scent of the roses and my mother’s universal powers of observation, everything is immediately back. Then I stand next to her in the rose garden – as if it were yesterday – and we philosophize about the language of roses.

This was the launch of prunkblume® | Rosenmalerei



In 2018 I founded the studio prunkblume | rose painting. It has always been my heart’s desire over the years to create an individual, non-digitalized project, which is oriented in its offer according to the individual wishes of my customers – and not according to the laws of the mass market.

PROFESSION | Dipl. Product Designer

For 30 years I was engaged in the theme of combining good product design with the art of flower painting.

I know the history of flower painting, especially roses, like the back of my hand and “the language of roses” I learned from my mother from childhood.

“the love of roses is like the love of music-
either it makes you dance –
or not”
