About my work

By drawing, I try to find ground in the ambiguous reality that surrounds me. I image the complexness of impressions that are close to me, with drawings, mono prints and photos. 

In drawing, a connection is made between images and emotions. In that process I explore a wider area, giving space to opposing forces that may coexist together: holding vs. releasing, beauty vs. horror, dream vs. reality. With my work I try to do justice to that complexity of life.
