my work

Painting, printing, cutting, gluing, folding, tearing, mixing, these are processes that I do almost every day. Art is not just painting, it is looking, feeling, absorbing, liking, disliking, remembering, rejecting, erasing, thinking, planning, finding new ideas and composing and if it pleases, then stopping and finally saying farewell when it is sold and leaves the studio.

my influences

I enjoy travelling. It takes me to other environments and I get to meet new people. Every experience has an influence on our lives and every experience  has an influence on my work.  I draw indirect inspiration from exhibitions, galleries, museums, posters, ads, places and environments, from looking at other peoples work.

I absorb ideas and  processes and  reject or accept notions and  conceptions, finally these influences will have a bearing on my art.

Music is important in my life, I listen to music every day. I work with music playing and it can directly influence how I apply the paint to the canvas.
