“I’d rather be known as a painter who acts than as an actress who paints,” says actress Elke Sommer. After her illustrious movie career and her marriage in 1964 to an American journalist she settled down in Beverly Hills in a large house with a huge living room with tempting bare walls. Elke started to paint in earnest using anything at hand for a canvas. Some of her early works were on her husband’s shirt cardboards, on wrapping paper and boards. Only a few were on canvas but they all had a central theme: they were a projection of her childhood combined with fantasies about the way life should be.
