After years of working in installation and multimedia the discovery of still life painting was a revelation to me. To create something what only needs to be beautiful: What a liberation!
The still lives may be relaxing, soothing in our over-busy world, or inspiring at best. But above all, the beach pictures are a celebration of simplicity! Perhaps it seems almost an anachronism these days to create such images, but I feel that many of us are longing for such a calm and peaceful simplicity.
Found objects from the shores of the Atlantic Ocean are the source of my inspiration. Many walks along the surf, lingering on the beach, pausing again and again, and wondering at the fragile beauty of these objects - and finally the try to capture their magic on a piece of canvas. The more I have the privilege to spend time on these miraculous things, the more my awe for their beauty
