"Playing jazz music from the 40’s, 50’s but also modern jazz allows and helps me to make the work I make because it gives me the feeling of the abstract expressionism movement, which you can see has a big influence in my work, combined with memories of my youth.
The only aspect I choose before I begin a painting is the base colour. The next step(s) arise spontaneously in the different series I’m working on at a specific moment.
In my work I use different materials. From regular acrylics to industrial paints, housepaint and oil based paints and by using different techniques like dripping, pouring but also working with old brushes, pallet knife as well as sometimes with my hands… That’s how I achieve the effects, depth and use of colour that you see in my work."
