My paintings are reflections, a single thought, a mood, a conversation on canvas, back and forward. A dance between colors, with movement and energy. The start of a new painting is always a very exciting moment for me. The blank canvas is waiting for my ideas and decisions about where to start and what to paint. My influences and inspirations are found everywhere in the daily life around me.
It can be the nature, a color, an emotion or a life experience.
I am an abstract expressionist painter. I enjoy the freedom to express my feelings and emotions and working intuitively. Listening to music and making meditative strolls along the shore are ways to get in contact with my subconscious before I can let flow the energy.
The whole process during the making of the painting is a very challenging one with all kind of emotions. I build, destroy, erase and paint over until I am completely satisfied.
Acrylic is my main medium, but I also love to work with oil and cold wax, a complete different technique and approach. I’m always learning and exploring new techniques that push me further with each new piece. As my life changes, so does the work.
