about
Ulrike Walther, born 1973, studied architecture at Bauhaus-University, Weimar and Strathclyde University, Glasgow. She graduated as diploma-engineer. Having discovered her love of watercolour in childhood, it continued to accompany her work as an architect since 1998 in Italy, Austria, Brazil and Germany. 2009 she started to combine her love to both, architecture and painting, in architectural illustrations. Today she is a freelance artist based in Hamburg; she conducts watercolour workshops, works on commissions and shows her paintings in national and international exhibitions. Watercolour is her true passion and so she says: „Painting in watercolour is like falling in love: this sense of pleasure I want to pass on.“ Ulrike Walther

inspiration:
Ulrike Walther says: “Painting in watercolour is like falling in love: if the colour opens up on the paper pulse-like when washing it is a sensual pleasure I want to pass on.“  Subject can be everything that could be depicted: landscape, flowers, trees, persons, animals, houses, ships etc. Important is, what looks appealing: the light, the mood, spatiality and perspective, short: a feeling that captures the essence of the depicted. 5_ueber_8
