About Elke Hensel

Elke Hensel - Freelance artist

I was born on 21.12.1964 in Karl-Marx-Stadt. As I can remember, I had a special relationship to nature, which I would describe today as my own form of religion. As a child I had the ambition to paint exactly what I see. Maybe the images of Rembrandt animated me. During my school time, I draw my sketches on everything that I could get, mostly portraits.

My greatest desire (to become Artist), I could not get after I finished school, because of political reasons. I learned the profession of the financial clerk/trader. But although I had this job, I continued drawing in my free time and discovered the ceramic for me. With the birth of my three children in since 1994, a new era began à the 10-years long intensive child care, with many human experiences. But during this time, I seriously had to reduce arts. Within this time, my desire, to express myself in form of art, grew steadily and was hard to stop, although I took my children to different ceramic workshops. I also got some skills with the potter’s wheel by learning from a experienced potter.

In 2004, I finally dared to try becoming self-employed and independent. In the same year I started a therapeutic art education and in 2005 an education by Prof. Heinz Deuser to work with clay.
Since 2010, after completed education, I can now turn to the work with art with new power again. Since the summer in 2010 I discovered a new kind of acrylic painting, which allows me to give my enthusiasm for the beauty a colored expression.

It is an overwhelming pleasure for me to show you the way I feel about art.
