I think up stories, but I don't write them down. Instead, I paint them and in this way bring them closer to the viewer. This is about self-expression and change of perspective, but also about breaking out of habitual thought patterns. I usually use strong colors to visualize the world of emotions and to emphasize certain contents. Time and space also have a special meaning in my paintings. Both dimensions are difficult to grasp and thus offer endless possibilities for interpretation.
The camera is for me a unique means of capturing what I see as a photograph, to subsequently create a work of art from it in a very individual way. The possibilities for this are unlimited.
