To live as an eighteen-year-old amateur painter in a room "fragrant" with linseed oil and paint was a pleasure for me.
The challenge and responsibility to produce high-quality oil paints is to combine knowledge from history, art, technology and current research.
Therefore, in the initial reverence for color, a passion grew over time.
Maybe this passion comes from my ancestors who had been dyeing my hometown for two hundred years.
Now 30 years later and due to the long-time occupation with oil paints, Lilly Künstlerfarben was founded in 2015 to make my paints also available to other artists.
Thereby ongoing discussions with artists, to talk about colors, techniques or recipes, are fundamentally to me and my paints.
So I am not only lucky to make my own oil paints, but also to have met so many outstanding artists over the years.
For which I am very thankfull!
