„The palette of my paintings speaks for itself. I love pink and purple, I love lightness, I love oscillating color accents, I love arabesques, I love funny figures, I love presidents that don’t lie or scream, I love the power of kids’ colors, I love to paint straight, I love to paint in layers, I love accidents and I love to overpaint.“ (Bettina Sellmann)
