My art is inspired by the tension between the outer and inner landscape: how are nature and the world around us affecting our well-being, our emotions, our soul, and how do we express this tension through the visual medium. For me this is a complex relationship, best endeavored to be expressed through multiple layers, different textural elements, transparent paint layers, stencils, collages, and always inspired by intuitive guidance. I often ask myself: “What does my painting want to see happen now?” When I’m stuck, I trust that there is no need for a plan, but just the need for trusting that I will be guided by the painting to find the way forward. I’m often surprised by the story that develops in the course of the many painting layers. At the best of times, the painting will take me on a journey of surprise and delight.
