MY NAME IS ANASTASIA
Born in Esslingen/Neckar, Germany, in 1978.
Grew up in Alexandroupolis, Greece.
Now I am living in Bisingen.
2022 I got married and my last name is
"Gehring". Most of my paintings are therefore
signed with my maiden name "Kiridou".
My love for art exists since early childhood.
I grew up at my grandparents`house right
next to the sea. I enjoy remembering this time
which has many positive associations.
The beautiful memories of my childhood
and my love for the sea have led me to focus
on maritime art.
I completed my studies in business administration
in Stuttgart, Germany.
In 2015, I decided to develop my passion for art professionally and founded "Pretty Paintings".
Since then I have been exhibiting my paintings
in galleries and at art fairs.
I am inspired by patterns, designs, architecture, surprising colour combinations and especially
in travelling. I try to connect these elements with each other and form new compositions.
My paintings are mostly figurative.
I use acrylic, oil and pastel colors.
I wish everybody a lot of fun with my paintings.
