As a painter, I create expressive abstract paintings with only a hint of the landscapes they are based on. My works are often full of contrast, bright colours and earth tones. I strive to create new worlds that give away a glimpse of the landscape as seen, yet still remain mysterious.

When I draw, I catch the visual experience in a more direct way on paper with black and white drawings, often intensified with colour.
