"My work is about expressing a mood, a feeling and I am constantly inspired by my environment, especially water and trees. I live surrounded by trees and foliage, so it's not surprising that nature influences my work a lot! I paint intuitively, in layers, following my curiosity. My paintings are always an emerging process and I welcome the accidental and random effects that can occur, especially when working with ink and water. My style is ever evolving, as I love the freedom of experimenting with techniques and materials. The act of painting brings me great joy and I hope my work makes people happy.''
