"Helga Schmitt was born 1936 in Augsburg, Germany. As late as 1998 the retired bookseller taught herself the technical knowhow and started the making of digital art, encouraged by her good relation to contemporary fine arts throughout her life. Very often her computerwork is based on photographs taken by herself. Amidst real landscape and architecture she's interested not only in the atmospere, the contrasting colors, the proportions; even more the small details and structures discovered will inspire her. By transforming, reconstructing and regrouping these elements she tries to create brandnew situations, topographies, alternated views, and virtual artifacts."
