Every painting is a beginning, free from previous events and thoughts. I fill the canvas with color, led by my spontaneity, my energy and what comes to mind momentarily. To see the painting live and developing is a thrilling experience.
Most of my works have a recognizable subject, but are made abstract by reduction and focusing on my emotional statement. The interpretation of the statement is left to the observer and her/his “emotional hard-disc”.
