In the studio of her uncle Werner Holz, an outstanding German artist, Birgit was exposed to Imaginary Realism/ Phantastische Matereil from early age. She says "I always wanted to make paintings that told stories and suggested things, but more in a metaphorical sense - the mirror image of memory or fantasy. I work with wax and I find myself hunting down the beauty of accidents and entropy.” She notes that the encaustic medium poses additional challenges as it cannot be blended and instead uses multiple layers of encaustic to achieve the same effect.
