Bio

I use silence to express myself through images, through which I enter silence. Silence is for me the space where there is a need to express something for which it is difficult to find words. That silence reflects nature. It is in nature that I find my inspiration. In what is decaying, in what is small and apparently insignificant, in what is not immediately considered beautiful and precious. I love to zoom in on small details on a large scale so that the beauty can shine through. Colors, shapes, and structure are my language, and it is taken directly from nature. Nature is represent-ed through my senses, emotions, perceptions, and experiences. Sometimes it becomes a longer study in certain forms, other times in particular structures and I often have periods with the same colors recurring in different ways in my paintings. I paint with acrylic colors, different types of chalk and pencil.
Often on canvas, sometimes on mdf panels and acrylic paper. There may also be images with collage layers.
