I paint and draw what excites me. The new works in the portfolio are

personal experiences. I like to be inspired by the landscape in all its facets.

My paintings often begin with a picture or an idea. I see an image and want

to rediscover and re-create. I look for ways to make this happen. The choice

of the materials, the kind of carrier, and the way in which I put the paint on

the canvas plays an important role. It is like a journey. I use what I discover

and I react on what happens on the canvas.
