Uschi Kuhn (creator of Algarve Art Retreat) was born in Heidelberg Germany and for over 40 years has seen beauty in the ordinary and translated the mediocre into stunning works of art. With her extended creative background she is offering a beautiful creative environment for artists from all around the world. Touching, feeling, caring, humour and colour are the foundation stones from which she creates her art. Her fields of work are not bound by any single artistic medium; clay, water colour, body-art, ferrous-cement, papier-mâché, glass, sculpting, painting, are all equal tools in her hands.
Every single aspect of life has a value that Uschi recognises; not only recognised through her artistic acumen but recognised through her empathetic compassion.
“All my life in my minds-eye had the picture of myself strolling in my secret garden in a long flowing dress wearing a sun hat and pausing in different locations to paint. And now that I have manifest my childhood dream, I want to share my piece of paradise with other artists and perhaps help guide them to relax, release, enjoy themselves and explore new possibilities in Art.”
“I have always embraced the world with both arms. I’ve conquered it, been lost, laughed a lot, and also cried and fought.”
Every now and then, passion and talent collude in the hands of a true artist who can transform life’s ordinary things, our ordinary bodies into a kaleidoscope of colour, splendour and joy, an artist such as this is Uschi Kuhn
