“To tell a tale by mixing emotion and energy with colour, sometimes intentionally, through the simplicity of a cave drawing, that is my recipe. Transformation by walking between realism and abstraction and vice versa, brings the elements to a balance. To demonstrate the purity and beauty of the contact between colour and canvas, is my language. I do not want to search throughout the painting process; I’d rather explore and think during the preparation. That makes the ‘battle’ between the canvas and me sincere. The painter’s urge to make something personal, authentic and original is not the easiest job, but it gives a special emotional charm and fulfilment at the smallest success.”
