I work in the moment like an actor on stage. As I paint, the paint and I enter a dialogue. The material leads and opens up possibilities. My goal is to express what I feel in the moment in such a way that the viewer feels it too. I embrace chance. I do not plan out my compositions. I want to create a mood and express complex feelings that words cannot capture. I am willing to gamble with the unknown. I want to create a flow of energy and express vitality. I am not concerned with a detailed representation of an object or person but want to capture the essence of the object of the painting. In some paintings I intend to avoid making a reference to a person or a thing and go totally abstract. My goal is always to express what I am feeling and I want the viewer to experience that!
