I get inspiration from absolutely anything and everything, whether it be something I see, or even emotions. My styles and techniques are constantly changing and I find that each painting provides me with even more ideas for the next. It is sometimes very hard to fall asleep at night – so much remained to be done, so much art to look at, so many sketches to do.
I am convinced that the thirst of beauty lies deep in human nature, and artists can make this world a bit better by bringing some piece of light, color and art to our everyday life.
I paint landscapes and life forms that promise better times and places.
Each picture should have an underlying message. This could be the flow of light, color, tone or shape. It could even be the distillation of the air between objects.
The best feeling is when a painting suddenly comes to life, and you see different color combinations, textures, your eyes keep getting drawn back to it, all the decisions you took along the way seem irrelevant because the painting just seems as if it couldn't have been any other way. And you think: I might just leave that one on the wall.
