In my opinion art and life form a symbiotic relationship. I do not consider painting a genuine art far away from the agonies of everyday life. It is my intention and desire to give other people the chance to find what they are looking for -­‐ simply by providing the same feeling that I experience myself...a calm expanse of the world, personal inspiration and inner balance. If they can find all this in my paintings -­‐ then I am content.
