I vary and play with expressions and styles - completely independent of trends.

I am always aiming to keep a high quality level both in material as well as execution.
I paint in both Acrylics and oil, and define my art as Semi-Abstract. I create my own style in art, crossing borders and established styles. Not trying to be up-to-date following the todays trends too much, because to me, today
is to me a temporary situation.
I want my art to be timeless, all the way communicating with the spectators over a long time. I have learned
that owners of my art experience new things with my art after years on their wall. That is an incredible feedback motivating me more than anything else.
