FRAGMENTS OF MEMORY

I draw my inspiration from living between countries and continents.
Random images of meaningful moments I have experienced…

INTO THE LIGHT

"Come forth into the light of things, let Nature be your teacher."  - William Wordsworth

Throughout the world we have become increasingly aware that nature and biodiversity needs to be a priority.

 

In a time where there is so much darkness my desire is to reflect and raise awareness to the fragility of nature and the human spirit and the delicate coexistence of both.

 

I invite the viewer to rather choose the Light and experience the healing power of art through nature.

BIRDS OF A FEATHER .... 2020

In between larger paintings and while watching the paint dry, I read an article on how bird watching can help people through tough times. These watercolor and collage artworks were created soon after and in the middle of the Covid-19 pandemic.

RE-IMAGINING HISTORY - 2019/2020

With these paintings I wish explore the dichotomy between new and old by over layering images from vintage magazines and photos with current images or paint, thus creating new narratives or re-imagining history.
