statement

Most of my work is a journey, as well as statement of my surroundings. Things happen all around us all the time, whether we acknowledge them or ignore them are always up to us.


I try to record some of mine, but life moves so fast, I just can't get them all, I attempt to nail down a certain Idea, feeling, something I have seen, or story I've been told, an experience that has made a lasting impression..... We all have similar pleasures and fears I attempt to come clean, without spelling everything out, I would rather you try to figure some of these things out, come up with your own conclusion, to have you pay more attention to your own world.


At one point or another we all end up in one of my paintings, what you see here, could help you decipher where you are, where you have been, and where you are going.



Not all of it is pretty.

Like a scary dream, i love it a lot!!
When can we, your fans, buy a book or a print from your work? I would love to have your art in my home. I'm afraid i can't buy an original, but a print or your work in a book would be so great. :=)

Sweet greetz for you.

One of my favorite poems from Introduction to Haiku, translated by Robert Hass:

"Don't kill that fly!
Look--it's wringing its hands,
wringing its feet."

Love the painting.
