My name is Carola Grutter, born in 1979. Painting is a way of expressing myself. With brush and oil paint I connect to feelings, dreams, art, journeys and music. The painted images are therefore foremost not realistic. The expressed emotions of the people and animals on the paintings vary strongly, from despair till satisfaction. The images have in common that they all also express a sense of stillness. 

I've chosen to be an autodidact and just let the process of painting exist for itself. My academical background is in psychology.
