Ute Meyer 1957 in Oldenburg, born in Lower Saxony and raised in Husum on the west coast has her studio in Flensburg on the east coast.
In the eighties she completed a degree in art education. She worked for over 30 years in a youth center with a focus on artistic design. Since 2007 she has shown her work nationally and internationally in exhibitions and galleries. Her paintings can be found with collectors at home and abroad.
One of her main focuses is plein air painting. She works in her own garden or at the Danish Baltic Sea. Over the years, she has developed a way of working outdoors that allows her to finish large-format canvases in one go, capturing the mood of the day. The constantly changing weather conditions and the changing light conditions influence the painting process and the image design, delay it or accelerate it. Other work -series such as macro studies of the beach or people and animals in the landscape are created in the studio. In the abstract painting are starting points experiences and experiences from their daily lives. Oil on canvas or wood, washed pen drawings and watercolor are her means of expression.
