“My biggest challenge is to express the light as I sense it. Light is my favorite quality in a painting, it creates the forms, the movement, the relationship of the tones and finally it forms the composition. I emphasise the light in my paintings through a tonal selection of dark and light forms. I am inspired by capturing a certain moment, a unique glimpse of our present, transforming it into revelation. So it makes me and the viewers appreciate the beauty in the simple moments of life”
