Artistís Statement

I like to create individual graphics using many different kinds of techniques and materials. My favorite colors are gained from natural materials such as coffee or tea, and I use silver and gold paint. I usually draw on handmade paper, which helps me to express the spirit of my pictures.
For me the content of my drawings are just as important as the decorative value. I have drawn many motives on the surface, which came true from the world of my fantasy.
I have always showed a big interest in studying different peoplesí cultures and traditions. Whenever I meet new people I learn more and more and it is so exiting to see such a great personality develop. I try to express these experiences through my interpretation.
The relation between human sentiment and movement interests me a lot. Many different moods and spirits can be expressed by movements music and dance can make them understood. It is a big challenge to me to convey these feelings using only the paper and my colors to show the spirit of the people.
