I see the world as layers. Layers upon layers of color, texture, emotions.

Back to Collection

Unnoticed I observe, interpret and reflect upon the life around me. I see the world as layers. Layers upon layers of color, texture, emotions. I respond intuitively to these layers and to my surroundings. It is my job to interpret these “intuitions” and to paint them, to make sense of them so that you, the viewer, can also “see” the layers of life around us. Balance and harmony are my tools and nature and my environment my focus. Color, texture, lines and thin layers are qualities inherent in my work.
