"Painting for me is an expression and a necessity. The 'conversation' with the canvas has become part of me. With perseverance and curiosity to create, I create works of art. While painting, a combination of skill, knowledge and concept thinking play a role. The inspiration comes from my heart, my feelings and is strongly connected to the fascination 'simplicity and solism'. I always want to innovate in my work. To seek challenge in what for me can be different and can be developed in my eyes."
