About me

about carolin

Kerstin Carolin Beyer
(1965, Germany)

My formation started with architecture (without degree) at the University of Wuppertal in Germany but graduated in psychology. As I wasn´t very convinced of what I learned I started working in the economy sector as consultant with McKinsey & Co., Inc. Starting a family this turned out to be impossible to combine and I stayed at home improving my painting and sculpture experiences.

Since my very young childhood I was very interested in and surrounded by artwork due to my mother who was artist and arts teacher. I feel inspired by nature, contrasts, colors and forms. My activities are in: Painting, Collage, Sculpture and Photography.

In 1989 I moved to Brussels, where I focused on painting and photography, and 1999 to Madrid with my family. Some years later I started joining classes of art with Martina Schmieder and later on with Carlos Fortunato.

Since 2022 I live permanently in Peniche, Portugal.

Further on I was distance student with Wiesbadener Freie Kunstschule in arts, drawing and painting. The direct exchange with the director who accompanies my work is always challenging. Later I got associated to Johnny Cool Art Gallery and collaborating in art fair projects with Eka & Moor Art Gallery, responsible for international relationships. The two of them are based in Madrid. The Art gallery GAUDÍ, Madrid, collaborated on regular basis with me taking my art work to international art fairs.

As for today I exposed and have art work in private collections in Belgium, Spain, Switzerland, France, Italy, Rumanía, Germany, Luxemburg, Denmark, UK, Monaco, New York, Miami and HongKong.

Lately I focus very much on the organisation of collecive exhibitions and national and international art fairs.

I’m cofounder and director of UAF UNITED ARTISTS FAIR www.uaf-unitedartistsfair.com. 4th edition planned for february 2022 which due to COVID restrictions still had to be canceled. With th recently founded UAA UNITED ARTISTS ASSOCIATION, which I’m the president of, we will bring the UAF to an international level, first of all Germany and Netherlands.
