Artist’s Statement 

My art portrays my interest in nature, humanity and observations of all life's aspects. My paintings depict the way I feel, see and experience this world.

The ideas for my paintings come from riding in the woods while carrying a camera. The camera works as my photo diary storing the interesting events and sightings which come alive in my work.

I find using different painting techniques rewarding and feel that always there's room to improve on. As I start on a new piece, my ambition is to achieve the objective that I've been driving on. As I paint, I let the paint and its' colors flow on the canvas by applying feeling to my painting method which also makes my work satisfying and liberating.

Painting is my passion. Painting gives the moments in my days in which I concentrate intensively on the joy of creating something new.
