Artist Statement, June 2021
Oil painting is at the centre of my artistic work. The mostly animal protagonists in my paintings are embedded in a mystical forest space, which can be both a place of longing and a carrier of hidden feelings. With the help of alienation and the combination of seemingly incompatible things, I create fantasy creatures. For the viewer, the impression of a new, magical encounter arises and references to fairy tales, myths and legendary figures emerge.
