by Helga Bäumler
Helga Bäumler's foray into art began during her pursuit of a career as a fashion illustrator and designer in the sixties. It wasn't until 1994 that she took her skills to another level and engaged her artistic hand in the portrayal of the human form. Human posture and its correlation with the face and expression have been a recurring theme in her work.
She considers her art as a channel to discover and understand human kind. Often it is only hinted in singular fragments - the definition of the object is then lost and can vaguely be perceived again as a demeanor or gesture.
Helga was born in 1942 in Nördlingen, Germany. She works in her "Taubenhaus" atelier in Ingolstadt.
