Author of three books about the effect of colors, the last one sold in Europe 45.000 times at Stb. Developer of "Holistic Color Consulting" - also the title of the book - in 1986 as the first in Europe. Afterwards 30 years of seminars and training in psychological color consulting. 2011 Development of the Mineral-Cosmetics ANGEL MINERALS.
When I started my work with colors in 1986, I was an absolute pioneer in the field of color consulting. However, how to tailor colors to the four color types was too superficial for me. Not least because of my studies of Psychology at Frankfurt University and my Art Semester at the "Städel", I knew: colors can do more, colors make more. They create moods and are even able to heal.
The combination of colors and psychology has allowed me to develop my own Holistic Consulting concept, which I have taught to hundreds of consultants in training seminars. During the whole time as a trainer for <Holistic Color Consulting> I was looking for a makeup that would not clog the skin until I took it into my own hands to develop one in 2011.
I founded ANGEL MINERALS - a manufactory with its own production for Pure Natural Vegan Makeup.
From the initial concept of offering good makeup to the Color Consultants I trained, the brand gradually developed into an "insider tip" for their customers. Through blogger reviews and activities in the "Social Media" the customer potential has developed to a certain degree of awareness in the Natural Cosmetics scene. This led sometime in 2016 to the decision to hand over the entire seminar activity to my colleague Elke Diemar and to focus only on ANGEL MINERALS.
The brand has been protected by utility model and certified as Natural Cosmetics (at ICADA). It also carries the label of the Vegan Flower (Vegan Society, UK). In the course of time, vegan brushes, mascara and lipsticks as well as mini lips were added to the initial powders, which as a small manufactory was quite a feat.
The future projects will mainly be in the direction of sustainable packaging. That means: Our powders will be filled in glass or paper jars, lip cream will be filled in small glass jars rather than lipstick (some of them are already available), eye shadow pigments will be pressed firmly into the jars, and refills will be offered as well (some of them are already available).

Excerpt from the video message of the Astronaut Alexander Gerst, who returned to earth at the end of 2018, which speaks very much from my heart:
"The future is more important than the past.
One's own view is always incomplete.
Give your dreams a chance.
Opportunities only come once.
For things that are worth it, you also have to take a risk.
A day when you look beyond your horizon is a good day."
