Together, we are madness. And there is music in madness, and madness in love. It doesn’t matter what the world thinks of us. Because we’re the composers, the conductors of our own fate, and we write the notes to a beautiful, dark melody that no one else can hear.” ― Keri Lake In this piece, I find joy in embracing the dance of darkness and light, weaving them together with vigorous knifestrokes. My blend of abstract, expressionist, and minimalist influences, tinged with oriental sensitivities, captures an enigmatic fusion of emotion. Through the subtle play of shadow and glimmers of brightness, I invite introspection and a surge of soulful energy, infusing any space with profound depth and a captivating, tranquil aura.

I am inspired by the French Lyrical Abstract style, which can be seen as a balanced elegant style of painting that is loaded with content from the natural world, often marked by sumptuous colour. French Lyrical Abstraction is about expressing something personal, subjective and emotive, and to do it in a poetic, abstract way. ​ I use colors to explore the relationship between nature and art, and its continuing transformation. Changing from minute to minute, nature provides the perfect symbols for all our emotions in life: sorrow, joy, regret, yearning, wanting, frustration, anger, love, and more. Nature depict life in all its messy, glorious, colourful and fleeting moments. ​​ I use a unique technique of my own invention, by creating a thickly applied layered surface full of small impasto markings of paint with a palette knife. This decadent surface of texture brings my abstraction to life. ​ My intention is to create finished work that is abstracted and more expressional than representational and I endeavor to generate a sense of intimacy while leaving the subject open to interpretation. ​ I have exhibited world wide and my paintings can be found in private collections in France, Hungary, Germany, Hong Kong, USA, Canada, UK and South Africa.
