When I paint I am fully involved with what I am doing but I am relaxed and do not feel the
time pass. Painting takes me to another world, somewhere where I have never been before.

I use brushes like most artists but I also apply paint with any tool I can lay my hands on.
Scrapers, palette knives, I even drop paint from the tube straight onto the canvas. I just let the
paint flow and amazing images come up I feel that there is a creative energy out there and
I am tapping into it, it is therapeutic and meditative.

This is the reason I call these Paintings “Meditations”.
