"Art is in my blood. Physically I need to paint, I'm driven. When I paint it's like I'm on a freeway with no cars, spontaneous and free. I search for a certain motion, an energy, a feeling. With a collection of styles, the vivid composition and textures are woven into several transparent layers while creating a sense of depth which begins to tell my story. The paintings evolve themselves; one layer inspires the next, and the next may seem to bear no relation to what came before. My work is a constant construction and deconstruction of the connection between the beauty and chaos of the world as I live it… Everyday is an opportunity to be inspired and submerged into the light and dark of this wonderfully profound existence we call life. Most importantly it’s a life in which I love living, and sharing with others."
