My work is about feelings. It is the sublime emotional state that I seek to record. It is about leaving the tracks of life, the footprints of moments, deep emotional impressions before they vanish. I capture them before I forget them. They live on in the shimmer of my paintings.
I try to reach the emotions of everyone by giving memory and life to my own. I seek to give the viewers the possibility to experience my feelings as an inner echo of their own.
