Brigitte Kuckenberg-Wagner lives in Solingen, Germany. Originally, she studied free painting and graphic. About 10 years ago she started working with digiart because the technical possibilities fascinated her. She mainly uses Photoshop, sometimes in combination with Blender, to create parts she can’t photograph. She taught herself both of these packages.
In her work, she tries to realize thoughts and dreams, to create new worlds with fragments of reality. She likes to tell little stories. She gets her inspiration from many things – from everyday life, books, news – sometimes only one word is enough to create a picture in her mind.
For her work, Brigitte only uses her own photos, no stock images from the internet. That sometimes makes implementation difficult, but it is important for her. She has successfully participated in several national and international competitions.
