When I pick up my brushes, I begin to tell stories.
My career as a journalist has inspired me to create a collection of photos from journals,
newspapers, archives and so on.
Painting, engraving, collage…. I’m juggling with techniques and materials, often allowing
myself to be surprised by the paths that the inner images take as soon as they are brought to
the canvas.
My processes are characterized by an almost childlike joy of touching people, motivating
them to lose themselves in a contemplation, a bracket outside of space and time.
