I paint and draw what excites me. The new works in the portfolio are personal experiences. Giving an example, 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.
