Working with traditional materials always was key in my work. Although I see myself as a multi-medial artist, painting is for the moment my main focus. Influenced by my studies in Sculpture, my early paintings were of a more pasty thickness as if I wanted to provide depth in my paintings by sculpting. Inspired by everyday simplicity, my attention shifted.
My paintings became more restrained and the expression that once lay in thickness of paint moved to an expressive use of color with still a hint of thickness visible through the brushstrokes.
I enjoy the details and texture that paint can bring, I do not fear the paint. I love to see the fluidity of paint and the searching of a pencil stroke. This search of balance in composition, colour and texture is key.
