Christel Haag is a self-taught abstract artist, who has travelled extensively, she has spent several years in Italy, Australia, New Zealand and Singapore. Today, she currently lives and works in Munich in Germany. She has previously worked as an Instructor, Consultant for Foreign Students, as well as Public Relations Officer at Universities in Germany

In 2002 she decided to follow her heart and dedicate more time to developing her skills as an Artist. Although predominantly a self-taught artist she continually takes classes by leading and well-known artists at prestigious art institutions. This included studies at the European Academy of Fine Arts in Trier, the Summer Academy of Blieskastel, as well as a stay in Provence. 

Haag has a deep passion for creating abstract art. Nature inspires and drives her work. Whilst the many marvellous impressions she takes home from her travels frequently appear in their abstract form in her paintings. Haag also expresses the mood and feeling of a particular moment in time. It is first and foremost the joy of painting, of colours, of the creative process itself and of the energy of being that drives her artistic creation.
