Hella Ridder portrait photography

Born in Daun in the Eifel in 1974 and discovered as an artist as a teenager, Hella Ridder received individual support early on and was accompanied in her personal development until around 2001 by the German artist H. Roetter.


The artist turned to abstract painting as an emotionally and intuitively guided means of expression as early as this first creative period.


On the solid foundation of artistic training, an individual style and characteristic style quickly developed, which are based on the continuous development of new forms of expression and experiences with the aim of constantly changing artistic creation in abstraction. The observation of nature as well as the observation of human emotionality as a source of inspiration remain constant companions.


The artist, whose works are presented both internationally and nationally and are in demand by art collectors, now lives in Dortmund and Bergisch Gladbach after having stayed in Istanbul, Rheinbreitbach and Bonn.
