Artist’s Statement

I have always been interested in colour and form. As I paint, form follows colour. Colour is the most essential content and means expression of emotions.

When I paint with acrylics and oil colours I use strong brush strokes and often also palette knife in order to give structure to the work. I also use watercolours. I am facinated to use them as this technic allows spontaneous even intuitive painting which I want to include to working with acrylics and oil colours.

I paint abstract colour paintings, which leave room for imagination and emotions. Everybody is allowed to see my paintings as a reflexion of ones associations.

Painting is the source of joy, peace and energy to me.
