Artist Biography
Born in Burgoberbach, Germany, she was living in the Frankfurt area for a long time. In recent years she has been changing the center of her live between her Franconian homeland (Germany) and southern Tuscany (Italy).

She was working as a cartographer for 15 years abd took privat lessons in grafic and painting. She was a gueststudent at the European Academy of Art in Trier. Further, Brigitta founded the etching class at the Kronberg painting school where she taught for 4 years.

Human and nature stand as main subjects in the center of her oeuvre. Since 1986 tranferring world literature into adequate picturesque works is a special challenge to the artist.

The encounter with Robert Musil`s novel "The Man without Qualities" was a crucial experience. She produced two cyles of 14 oil paintings each (Musil-Paraphrasen and Musil-Paraphrasen II) Publisher Peter Lang, Bern, New York.

This became step stones in her artistic development.
