Because of the colors' vibrancy I mainly work with oil paints. For many years the topic and inspiration of my paintings has been rooted in the connection to my childhood and the topic of our roots and were we come from. Over the last years I have been taking my inspiration from paper collages I have made. I love the symbolism of the animals and objects in each piece and the stories the paintings might inspire in the viewer. For many years now painting the crown has been a healing and meditative process for me.
