I urge to explore and experiment; I delve deep inside while I create. I escape into a zone I only get to enter while working, unravelling stories, bursting out of my subconscious. I can relate to the theory that people have a collective memory, symbols emerging out of that memory, a memory going further back than my own conscious.
My approach keeps taking numerous detours.

I incorporate the imperfections of the furniture to become spontaneous elements in the paintings covering the items.
My art found its' way to boardrooms,
