"I paint my pictures with acrylic and oil paint, - on canvas and mainly with spatula and flat brushes.

I take my motivation from the painting itself and my goal is always the representation of abstract, fictional forms. My paintings do not tell political or anecdotal stories, but they illustrate a reality of their own.

I paint spontaneous colour superimpositions - again and again - I correct the picture until a homogeneity and a colour tone is created.

In doing so, I put the emphasis, for example, on a certain colour, let other colours recede and consciously use fine lines and bars as a design element. This creates tension, order, division - the chaos of colour layers is restrained, spaces, colour landscapes and fields of tension are created.

My works are abstract and find their origin in informal painting.

This opens up the freedom of my artistic creation: a wealth of signs, traces and instinctive brushstrokes can fill the space of my paintings and I can give free rein to my creativity.

Since my paintings are only created through the painting process, the naming of the paintings takes place after completion.

The painting itself finally inspires me to find the name."
