the world. She is the founder and President of the International European
Artists Association, and the organizer and leader of a number of international

About the tiles, “Mariendom”:
The pilgrim church of “Mary, Queen of Peace,” built in 1968 in the old county of Berg, is
admired by Christians and non-believers alike--not least of all architects. Visible from afar, it
looms above the rooftops of Neviges like a monumental Expressionist sculpture. The
architectural Professor Gottfried Bohm notes that the church “mirrors the undulating
landscape of the Berg Lands.”
