Why do I paint?
The simple answer is,
because I need to, and
when I am in my creative space
I don’t want to stop.
But that is the easy one,
the real reason
is a bit more complex than that.
I have always been creative, and when i was younger,
I used my creativity to escape from the difficult,
and unpleasant things in life.
The day I was introduced to the world of painting,
I knew that it meant something more to me,
it was a language in which I had the opportunity
to say the things I found difficult to express in words.
Today painting is what makes it possible for me to be a part of society,
without getting angry, depressed or frustrated...
Painting gives me a breathing space, where I can process all of the thoughts and questions about us humans and how we interact in the world.
I have always felt more connected with nature, then with humans.
I often feel that I don’t really belong here,
which makes it all the more understandable that,
the human existence is the focal point of most of my paintings,
and that the compositions are inspired by nature.
