My mother was a very gifted artist. She painted, drew and sculpted the most beautiful things. When we were children we were always put to work with paper and paint when we uttered words like ‘mummm, I am bored...‘ 

I wanted to mimic her, but my skills didn’t reach. In frustration I threw my paintbrush away... It ended in a dark corner... where it stayed... for a long long time.

At some point I decided to pick it up again. I wanted to tell... It didn’t really matter how. Paint, write, draw....

My work is heartfelt. The feeling is always the center of it all. Feelings color your world... They color the world you experience. And just that feeling... that emotion... That's what I want to bring to the attention.

The Unknown
