An artist arranges according to his ability, the created objects that are placed before him, and thus passes them on to the understanding of others.
- Leonardo Di Vinci
A great painting much like a great movie, book or song stirs the emotions of its viewer. It touches memories, expectations, feelings and thoughts inside them and it brings these to the surface. I feel that the more honestly I can access and focus on my human feelings while creating a painting the greater chance I have of connecting with someone else. My work is an attempt to look within in order to reach out to others.
