Artist Statement: 

Using paint as a medium allows me to be alone and go from outside to inside. It brings me into an introvert state of mind in which the rational turns into the intuitive in terms of decision making and creating the right conditions to work in. The gestural aspect of creating traces with everything I do in the studio are a big part in the process of making.

After a painting session I often use leftover paint on material that lies around in the studio. These result in small scaled work on surfaces like cured rabbit skin glue, gypsum or packaging foam. I work quickly and my painting actions should not be hesitant but speedy to keep up with the flow of ideas and possibilities that painting can provide
