Ulrike Walther

born 1973, studied architecture at Bauhaus-University, Weimar and Strathclyde University, Glasgow. She graduated as diploma-engineer. Having discovered her love of watercolour in childhood, it continued to accompany her work as an architect since 1998 in Italy, Austria, Brazil and Germany. 2009 she started to combine her love to both, architecture and painting, in architectural illustrations. Today she is a freelance artist based south of Hamburg, Germany; she conducts watercolour workshops, works on commissions and shows her paintings in national and international exhibitions. Watercolour is her true passion and so she says: „Painting in watercolour is like falling in love: this sense of pleasure I want to pass on.“


Ulrike Walther says: "Painting watercolours is like being freshly in love: When, for example, the colour rises like a pulse in the paper during the wash, this is a sensual joy that I want to pass on." The subject can be anything that can be painted: Landscape, flowers, trees, people, animals, houses, ships etc. What is important is what appeals: the light, the mood, the space and perspective, in short: a feeling that captures the essence of what is shown. Watercolour is the supreme discipline among the arts of painting: the transparent colours are difficult to handle. Every stroke remains visible, nothing can be painted over. There is no white colour, only the paper can remain light. This makes watercolours, in which water and light are artistically rendered with light brushstrokes, all the more impressive. Water is the medium on which watercolour lives. Light brings the atmosphere to life.

Ulrike Walther works in her idyllic country studio in the Nordheide, about 30km south of Hamburg city centre in Holm-Seppensen (accessible by train). The large studio space with a lot of light and a skylight gives the opportunity to develop. The embedding in the beautiful nature and the proximity to the heath give everyday contemplation and concentration.
