Sabine Kofler-Michaelis: “Painting is a passion for me, and I enjoy the creative activity, which makes me forget time and space despite highest concentration. I paint in order to make the things that touch me, visible and understandable to myself, by placing it on the canvas. Often I follow only a certain color harmony which is in mind.”
Since 2011 the paintings by Sabine Kofler-Michaelis can be seen in numerous solo and group exhibitions.
