Artist Statement

My paintings comprise simple hand drawn lines, wobbly and shaky, imperfect and full of mistakes. Inspired by doodles, they have a homemade look. Guided by my intuition I draw lines, put dots and make marks. Chance and control merge in the making of the artwork. My paintings are full of joy, humor and play. Simplicity and acceptance are of essence. My work is about the beauty of imperfection, the surprise of flaws and the adventure of mistakes. It talks about the resilience of human spirit, striving and failing as we move through this journey of life.
