...I am interested in the elegance of timelessness. I am interested in things that provoke meditative thoughts, create a sense of wonder, leave space for interpretation. I try to make sense of life using my intuition and inner wisdom rather than logic or rational conclusions. I admire and respect the unknown and often get lost in its labyrinths not trying to find an exit anymore but simply enjoying the walk. My inspiration comes from water, air, motion, geometry, calligraphy, bamboo, fragmentation, ink and colours. I am constantly exploring the relationships between movement and stillness, movement and colour, movement and sound, sound and colour, sound and silence. I often meditate upon such things as emptiness, time, moon and courage...

I work in a cross-disciplinary manner using visuals, dance, sounds, video, installations and performance art, and find it very stimulating and unbinding. I often work outside and find my inspiration in public transport, forests, mountains, oceans, rivers, on bridges and busy city streets. My language is a language of deceptive simplicity which contains millions fragments of sadness and joy, which I mix in various proportions each time I move or paint. I am also looking for a common language which I could use to communicate with all human beings on a molecular level so that we enjoy the elegance of timelessness and silence in unison.
