My main stimulus comes from what I see, feel and experience. I always carry a sketchbook so I am constantly drawing. Sometimes the drawings are left in the sketchbook and some of the drawings are brought together into compositions using a geometrical framework that are used as the basis for prints (lino cuts) and paintings. My current work centres around drawing from life, landscape, and public spaces such as dance halls and pubs. I use drawing to study of people around me and how they relate to me, to each other, and their environment Main area of interest is the human figure and the human condition. I am interested in social and dynamic situations where cultures, friends, and strangers meet. The aim is to re-present reality with the means at my disposal and convey with immediacy the power and pleasure of what is before me. Drawing in particular allows me to engage in an intimate relationship with the subject, it is a means to get a grip on reality, to connect with the other, to feed, to keep going, to move forward, to protect oneself against the cold, empty darkness. I also have an interest in art theory, in particular how meaning is ascribed to paintings and its relationship to the intention of the artist.
