Using paints, inks and various other media I create images in which the spectator finds himself or herself in a space where nature seems to have the upper hand whilst man is often visible only by the imprint he has left behind. I'm interested in the beauty and man's relationship with the often paradoxically powerful yet fragile natural world.


I'm as much inspired by cinema & music as I am by painting and other artists, possibly even more. As such I see my paintings as movie stills, snapshots of what may be real, of what may have been, of what may become.
