Whimsical pictures inspired by my inner thoughts.

For me art making is an all-encompassing visual exploration of my thoughts.

I create using animal motifs in whimsical manner, and while doing so I am aware of my appreciation of relationship between lines and shapes and different types of paper.

In order to be able to fulfill this calling to express these mental and visual images, I draw and color so that I, as well the viewer, can see my thoughts. Sadness and sorrow are too much with us. In my pictures I choose to bring laughter and joy.

My approach to art is best expressed by Alfred, Lord Tennyson in “Ulysses.”
"I am a part of all that I have met;
Yet all experience is an arch wherethro’
Gleams that untravell’d world whose margin fades
For ever and for ever when I move."
