Supporting Creativity and Innovation
Every piece of art I create is a part of my soul.
My soul wakes up every morning and helps me to see my day.
And translate the beauty into colours.
It makes me who I am.
It makes me how I live.
It makes me how I paint.
I am expressionism.
Only then I can learn to let go of what lies outside my sphere of influence, and I can work on happiness and future.
They say you need a reason to express yourself, but expressing yourself is the very reason.
Between darkness and light, there is a path leading up to find yourself again.
Creativity and soul.
Being an artist takes courage. I never thought I would do this in a million years.
But hey, I did.
Since 1968 I have been working as a visual artist.
My disciplines are: Painting, etching, printing, Integration art (photography and make-up), performance, portraits analogs (printing of cutting boards) and model drawing.
I exhibit at home and abroad. See exhibitions for an overview.
As a drawing and painting teacher I activate creativity with students, with the aim of stimulating a free spirit.
Changes and developments are central to my work.
This involves changes in the surrounding nature and in myself.
I was inspired by the I Ching (the Chinese Book of Changes.)
The hexagrams in the book are a moment in time, an eternal stream of changes.
Precisely because changes are the theme for my work, the overview of my paintings from the past periods shows a fascinating personal development.
I find the materials for my paintings in the immediate vicinity, such as rose petals and feathers. For me they are expressions of growth and vulnerability.
I combine the materials within a painting into a whole that gives an interpretation of the moment; unique and at the same time one with the maelstrom of movement.
My paintings are objectively constructed.
