My way of expressing is abstract while the process of making my art is as equally important to me as the finished painting. Picasso once said that ”Art washes from the soul the dust of everyday life”. It is perfectly true for me: I see more clearly afterwards, feel liberated and balanced. I work with canvas & handmade paper by using gesso and different layers of paint (oil and acrylic color). Between those layers I use sandpaper to bring out structure and texture. The combination of sanding, scratching and applying layers of paint emphasizes special areas but at the same time it brings out unexpected shapes and forms. Through this process every piece of my work becomes unique.
