A statement by the artist:

"Painting is for me a deeply personal experience. In my portraits of men and women, I want to express their feelings and life experience. With the use of lines, color and painting tools, I create a tremendous emotional interplay between the subject and myself. Such handling or technique becomes a dance involving my whole being, translating the emotions of the subject and merging them with my own.

Quite often, anemones, 'wind flowers' are introduced as a symbol of beauty, strength and vulnerability combined, so as to emphasize those same qualities in us.

I turn to landscapes, as I am forever in awe at the overwhelming beauty and power of Nature. Its healing quality calms, its wisdom soothes. For me, Nature oozes a philosophical and metaphysical knowledge, renewing my faith in gloryfying powers of which I have no knowledge, and which, therefore, I can accept.

Being human and created by Nature, painting both, is as necessary for me as breathing."
