We are in continuous contact with the Universe 🌍 through the perception of forms, colors, sounds, bodily sensations. 😍 My paintings are like portals between our world and the world where there is no time. ✨ Silent, frozen forms that have the potential to come to life and start moving in the endless round dance of events. 😌

"I am very interested in the boundaries between shapes, how they come together and the push and pull as they affect each other. I like manipulating values so that some shapes come forward, and others are pushed into the background.
Flowers have been a focus, but more often now than in the past in a wilder, less formal setting, and just at the very beginning edge of the disintegration. The dark backgrounds are an important emotional element – they symbolize the source of life and energy that the flowers have come out of, and to which they will eventually return.
Another theme that I have been exploring are the distortions and reflections that glass creates – almost like small universes mirroring the environment but unique and complete in themselves."
