Artist Statement: I have always been fascinated by colours, even as a child, and as an adult I have found that flowers, clothes and cosmetics all provide me with regular sources of intriguing or delightful colour combinations. I become inspired to paint through silence and peace, by performing yoga, through meditation and by being in nature. I am trying to express my inner feelings from my soul in my work, but also relationships and emotions in and between human beings. I am very sensitive to the feelings of others, and that sensitivity forms an important part of my artwork. I am painting directly onto the canvas, always barefoot, often through finger-painting with the consequence that each painting becomes absolutely unique.
