I work with tempera and oil painting as well as collage. My pieces are inspired by the encounters of the subconscious and the surrounding world. I don’t plan the pieces in advance; instead, I let them develop, layer by layer. I love surprises and the process of creation they allow. Experiences of history, the modern age and nature come together in apocalyptic mindscapes.
