My paintings are based on experiences, images and ideas from the environment. I want to construct a free, lively, exotic, colourful, enchanting and decorative world with floating forms from the most surreal and spiritual to the most prosaic, sublime and bizarre. Celestial and cosmic elements, tribal communities, ancient mythology, symbols, artefacts, rituals,  cave drawings and monumental works of civilizations forgotten, lost or recorded in the history books are sources of inspiration.
