My mother was a very gifted artist. She painted, drew and sculpted the most beautiful things. When we were children we were always put to work with paper and paint when we uttered words like ‘mummm, I am bored...‘ 

I wanted to mimic her, but my skills didn’t reach. In frustration, I threw my paintbrush away... It ended in a dark corner... where it stayed... for a long long time.

At some point I decided to pick it up again. I wanted to tell... It didn’t really matter how. Paint, write, draw....

After years of trying I am now the artist I want to be. I pick up anything that interests me and look where it brings me. It can be anything, a piece of glass, a lid of a bottle, seeds of a flower, a drawing, an idea... Sometimes it's a next step... sometimes it does nothing. At least, so I thought it did...

But that turnes out not to be true. Pieces I started years ago... drawings, writings, insights... seemingly useless, a step taken which did not go any further... Looking back at it all... they are all blueprints... Blueprints of pieces yet to be finished... This realization enriched me enormously. All seemingly hopeless attempts became blueprints for the future...

My work is heartfelt. The feeling is always the center of it all. Feelings color the world... Your world... and mine... They color the world you and I experience. And just that feeling... that emotion... That's what I want to bring to your attention.

So I invite you... I invite you to open your heart... I invite you to experience my world.... and I invite you to experience yours...
