Artsit statement 

"The basis of my work is the act of painting and drawing itself.  Rather than a fixed image, the process determines the result.

 Form, texture and colour are an important aspect of my work.  The honesty with wich the materials -oil paint, pencil and oil crayon show themselves provides the spectator an insight in the creative process.  

Throughout the years I created my own abstract visual language that invites you to pause, reflect and set of your imagination.   like to think that my sketches leave a spontaneous and positive mark in these rather dark times."
