Astrid Stöppel was born on the 7th of June 1974 in Weilheim, Germany. After her studies in biology and human genetics in Munich she decided to enter in the own family business, a store with books, stationery and art supplies located in Weilheim. Working there requires a lot of time, creativity and passion, but she really loves this job until now. The different colors and the white, large canvases, which she daily sold in her shop, attracted her in a magical way. She finished her first large abstract artworks.
Astrid has experimented with several mediums, such as oil pigment sticks, watercolor and ink, but acrylics tend to her most preferred medium. At the moment she works on two very different styles. The series “colorful acrylics” is painted on large canvases, strong and powerful colors on a white or black background in different motions. The other series “fluid acrylics” is very emotional. With a special technique on paper the colors merge – sometimes more, sometimes less – and harmonize on their own way. Two series, one artist…soft and full of feeling on the one hand but straight, powerful and passionate on the other.
