I burn for women's rights and equality. As a former president of the Women's Career Network in Vienna and a female artist, I am very aware women are still under represented in art.

Sometimes this frustration of not being taken seriously as an artist because of being a female artist expresses itself in my work. I was fascinated by this cooker and the lovely colours. And in German you say "Frau am Herd" in the same way as "Tied to the Kitchen Sink" is used in English. 

In 1950s Britain there were a group of artists called the "Kitchen Sink Painters" because they painted every day situations in the home. 

This cooker can be found at 2100m above sea level in a mountain hut I stayed in during the 4 years I painted there. Its a beautiful piece of work. And also shows how I wish these issues were history. 

Now its preserved as a beautiful bit of "household art". Why not hang it in your kitchen? I love having art in the kitchen, it cheers you up no end - and look, there's no washing up!

I will send this to you in a cardboard mount, carefully wrapped in cellophane and lovingly packaged with cardboard so it arrives in great condition, ready for framing.
