“The light, the color and magic in the current moment are inspirations in my art. My inspiration is found around me and in the inner world of imagination. I find it exciting to provoke the audience’s imagination to see a story and feel emotions when looking at the painting. Light, colour, nature, metaphor, mood, and emotion - these are some key words in my art themes. I focus on landscapes, cityscapes in my watercolor works and I like to mix the reality and fantasy world in the acrylic paintings. Acrylic pouring technique is something I recently discovered. Combining pouring and detailed realistic painting together is something I really enjoy.”
