Biography

About Meike Aton
Art has always been an integral part of my life. As a child growing up in Germany, I made dolls including their accessories, knitted intricately patterned sweaters of my own design and drew the surrounding nature. After a teaching career in Florida and raising two sons, I was finally able to return to the art world with vigor.

 

My current style of brightly colored, large abstract and mixed media paintings, in which I fuse organic with geometric elements, is heavily influenced by my mentor Frits van Eeden, workshops in Taos, NM, Marco Island, FL, and many others. My art is inspired by a plethora of images from nature, other artists like Cezanne, Monet, O’Keeffe, Macke, Rothko and Richter to name just a few, and of course color! The environment I live in, the places I go to, they all carry inspirational power over me. I just love diving into gorgeous colors with a big paint brush or palette knife, slopping it directly onto the large canvas and start playing. The best outcome always comes from an emotional place, when my brain gets turned off and my heart on. It’s like being led by a power outside me, if I allow it in.

 

You can find my Award winning Art in a number of businesses, Art Fairs, Art events and airports in Florida, Missouri and Germany on a regular basis.

 

Appreciation for my art has led to numerous awards as well as being featured in a variety of local and international publications reaching as far as Korea and Germany. Private collectors of my Art can be found from Canada to South America and Europe.
