Creates figurative or abstract drawings, paintings and monoprints either from observation or the imagination.

"During Covid-19 restrictions, I find consolation in nature, Many of my works depict landscapes but they are imagined scenes. I start without a preconceived idea. The image develops in the painting process which is like a dialogue between the emerging picture and me. Despite the dark elements like clouds or rocks which seem to threaten the viewer, there is light that gives us hope and this light of hope is very important to me."
