"It is the gooey luminosity and extensive versatility of oil paint which inspires me to work as an artist. I love the medium and its ability to create a wonder of contrasts, both in form and colour but also in content and I am in awe of its constant teachings. The trick is to know when to stop. The content is of utmost importance. The subject matter to lesser extent. I like to create stories and evoke emotion.”
