My art is abstract because feelings, dreams, and illusions do not have forms or boundaries. There is nothing more exciting than an empty canvas and tubes full of paint.
I like to give colours a certain independence and liberty in my work;
I see a picture, say – a landscape – I see shapes, I see colours, I feel the emotion and in my mind I vision a form and ideas - all based on the one picture I have in front of me. What I then commit onto canvas is an effort of both - the external picture and my internal response through colour and shape but also to think new, not been done before and push my art in new directions.
