Artist Statement

My paintings often explore imagined landscapes. Through abstraction of perspective, form and tone I try to establish an inspirational environment rich in joy of creation and discovery. There are sometimes when familiar or repetitive daily environments are experienced as an unusually new but intimate sensation. This is the very moment that my landscape is created. By long meditation or short and intense awakening moments, my heart responds to the whispering of surrounding nature and the creator of the universe. To me the landscape as a painting subject is neither a ready-made thing to depict nor a stationary, given scene. Landscape is the active place where my internal and external worlds relate to each other and intertwine within one another. I just hope the encouragements, joys and loves that I have experienced at this place also talk to you and inspire your life.
