�Art for me is the freedom to create with no boundaries, to express the diversity of color from which the human soul is composed .
Spreading color across a canvas is a means of meditation; I connect with my inner self. My hands just move with rhythm using the painter knife to mix the colors directly on the blank canvas. I choose the colors and let my soul conduct me, handling the knife as a brush .
The colors merge on the canvas on their own. I then use a spatula to paint over them in oil. When working in water color "aquarelle", I allow the colors to merge with the water in whatever direction they choose .
I feel when the artwork is ready and reaching a balance between the colors. I usually have no preconceived idea and am always curious to see the final results of my painting .
My major influences are Monet and C�zanne but I also appreciate the works of Van Gogh, Sissley, Renoir and Michelangelo .
I am also fascinated with Japanese art and calligraphy .
