Beate was born in Frankfurt, Germany where she attended High School and Music School. Her major was Violin, and she went on to play on stages across Germany as a Country Fiddler, song writer and producer.
The year Beate met her husband Chris, her world changed. She packed her bags and moved to Los Angeles. A dream come true for this English spoken horse lover, who always thought she would be a cowgirl 'when she grew up'.
In Los Angeles Beate found her passion for Photography, Energy work and Spiritual Psychology, which lead to her Master's Degree with an emphasis on Consciousness, Health and Healing. Her intuition for the world and its energetic ways grew, as she developed her skills and her voice in photography. She was awarded with multiple nominations for best Abstract image, Architecture and Americana by the Black and White Spider Awards as well as the Photography Masters Cup. She received honorable mention for one of her images shown at her first exhibit in Los Angeles about and at the Professional Musician's Local 47. Beate's ground breaking intuitive work of flower portraits, mounted under acrylic glass with silver hand painted onlays in the rhythmic patterns of classical music pieces is on exhibit in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico.
Beate's family is her life's center, and the love of her life Chris as well as her children are her constant inspiration. Her newest work is inspired by her journey with her daughter to Japan and South Korea . More to come...
