Workshop Description

Everybody has a creative side, it is the inner critic and our own judgement and expectation that is keeping us from connecting to our inherent creative source. My goal is to bring this inner critic into consciousness, acknowledge it but also letting go of it, so that the participants can loosen up and tap into their true creative potential.

Biography for Simone Buck

Born in 1971 in Germany, Simone holds a degree in Graphic/Communication Design from the University of Applied Sciences, Mannheim, and has worked as a graphic designer in the scientific publishing industry for many years.

Simone first developed her love of painting when, as a child moving between Germany and West Africa, she discovered she could create her own worlds as the outside world changed.
Simone frequently and comfortably switches between very luminescent, light and dynamic modes of painting and an achromatic style accompanied by a reduced use of shapes. Her paintings are a blend of spontaneous brushwork paired with consciously applied painterly techniques.
Living a life close to the wilderness, away from cities built up areas, her art naturally tends to revolve around organic structures and energy states in nature. Most of the work is left untitled as she feels it important that the viewer approach her work with no added influence, so that he/she may freely arrive at his/her own interpretations.
