I view myself as an experimental artist. I work through an open creative process. I begin without knowing where it will end, what I will create. I discover while I advance in completing the work.
I develop slowly, step by step. I enjoy creating this way.
Art is a coincidence to me and an interactive process which develops into it’s own statement.
I enjoy myself drawing / painting / sculpting faces of people. Could be anyone but I have distanced myself from the realistic photographic drawings and paintings. The faces I make are recognizable but sometimes even not. Sometimes it could be anyone, a line or a spot on the canvas that triggers my imagination. Numerous of portraits are Self-portraits based on self-analysis.
The major themes in my work are people.
I love to draw and paint portraits of people and “life drawings” have always been my preferred Medium. I am fascinated by the imperfection of people. The small differences that make them unique and therefore beautiful.
My medium is Acrylics, Charcoal, Pastels, Clay.
