A 25 year old abstract artist, I am a native of North Carolina. I dabbled in art growing up and studied design in college but only in recent years has art become a passion.
I paint under the pseudonym “AUF” and combine that term with “essen” to describe my mission. Both words are from German heritage with “auf” meaning to carry on or to transition and “essen” meaning to eat. Painting provides me with a feeling of fulfillment in transitioning my ideas to a medium and in observing the digestion of my work by others.
Painting in acrylics, I tend to incorporate an array of colors, textures and materials. My style is more experimental than deliberate and I definitely prefer to “go with the flow” when creating.
In recent months, I’ve had showings in small venues in Spartanburg, SC and in Raleigh, NC. I have upcoming engagements to display paintings in cafes in Chapel Hill, NC and Carrboro, NC.
