Painting is my addiction! 

I love to play with different textures, colours and techniques, and try out something new.

I also like to try out different styles, such as impasto technique that you can find in my ‘lilac ladys’ series, or by using thick heavy paint in my palette knife paintings or even making canvases with very liquid acrylic with a lot of layers to get an opaque pop art effect. 

Also making collages is very relaxing and satisfying for me. To search for old, torned street posters and then to combine them with prints or screen printing. Playing with colours, stencils, thickness, and so much more.

Making abstract paintings is like entering a new world. You know the beginning, but you don't know where it will end...
