Born in Berlin, Germany in 1951, Karl-Heinz and his family immigrated to Canada in 1956.

Following formal education in Toronto, Ontario, Karl worked as an architectural and landscape draftsman. In 1976 Karl moved to Alberta where he met and married his wife in 1978 and helped raise his two sons.

At a very early age Karl’s love for drawing and expressing himself through art was always with him. In early 2000’s Karl started experimenting with the use of watercolours for his paintings. He found this medium a perfect match that allowed him to build up layers of these transparent colours resulting in the vibrancy of his paintings.

This self-taught artist is a current member of the Calgary Artist Society and is starting to see his talent evolve through developing his own style.

Karl’s Paintings have been shown in 2018 Western Art Gallery Calgary Stampede
