Hiltrud Esther Menz was born in Mannheim in 1964 and grew up in Palatinate. After her A levels she studied communication design with a focus on illustration with professor Nicolai Sarafov in Würzburg until 1990. In 1987 she moved to Cologne where she freelanced for different publishing houses and advertising agencies. Since 1989 there have been solo and joint exhibitions. In 1997 she moved to the Göttingen area with her family. The focus of her work has narrowed to free illustrations and drawings with different solo and joint exhibitions.
The artist on her work:
»All the events that lead to a picture are ignited in and on people – between everyday life, memories, ephemerality, the subconscious – in their interrelations, relationships and experience of existence. Life comes from within, which I have to make visible for me with means I can rely on. My hands transfer energy, energy solidifies into bodies, something emerges as an illustration or a painting as part of myself, vulnerable and beyond language, something emerges as extension of my thinking which surprises me time and again but which must be true.«
