Originally from Schleswig- Holstein, Germany, Silke ‘s talent and interest as a painter began while admiring her great grandmother Vala Lamberger’s highly skilful portraits.
Although a busy Osteopath for 30 years, Silke has made time to train extensively under the tutelage of many well known artists in watercolour and pastel together with new, life drawing and portrait projects. This recent work incorporates both figure and flower elements in full height stature.
Silke’s work is noted for its vibrancy and reflective perspective and these elements within her studies have led to many successful exhibitions in London, Essex and Germany.
