“My paintings don’t happen instantly, they are journeys and explorations which take time, sometimes years. They are inspired by feelings and the subconscious urges to get in contact with the unknown. Creativity is a way to discover, to express and to learn. I’m sometimes amazed what emerges in my paintings.”
