Curiosity, objectivity, empathy and love are the driving forces behind my passion for creating.
I take the freedom to describe my style of working as expressionism through mental- and physical improvisation. Working with the whole body and a free mind is my solution to reach artistic satisfaction and a total release.
I don't stop painting until I see concrete evidence of raw ambiance revealing. The work has to start breathing on it's own. I aim to stay away from creating static images or repetitive patterns, even if there are preconceived ideas, The evidence of subconsciousness being present, is key.
Questioning subjects, balancing the physical limitations and disarming the mind bears results. If any of these are missing, my work is not complete.

A dialogue of imperfect-perfect -brings my works to life.
Our up-bringing and early environment can dictate of who we eventually become. In an ideal and more loving world, we find the strength to rise above our circumstances and learn to look through objective lenses. Without prejudice and with a healthy curiosity toward all of the universe, we can grow. The subjects circling around the Absolute Truth, are endlessly interesting to me and reflect my work. The dark side and the light side - the big mystery of our Existence. .
