Artist Statement:
My Artwork does not describe any one particular style, but rather my general attitude towards certain subjects or topics of our world. My Paintings convey my individuality, spontaneous thoughts and ideas. It is like a journey into the deepest corner of my mind. Others have described it as “An embarrassment of riches in a colorful world of subconscious thinking”.
