ARTIST’S STATEMENT:

Influenced by nature, philosophy, human cultures and their cross-cultural connections; exploring art has put me in touch with the creative forces, and become a path to spiritual exploration. Mostly my paintings are created from within, through layering the colours and the brush strokes. Images often emerge from working the surface, and are created from the depth of my imagination. I search for harmony, balance, reconciliation and peace in my art, which stimulates a personal, authentic expression of my inner feelings. In my search for meaning, life experiences now resonate with my inner being.
