"Trees always inspire me. For many, many years, there’s been nothing more satisfying for me than a walk in the woods to soothe my being. It’s about connecting with nature, the feelings this brings and sensing the spirit within the trees. I’ve felt this since my early years. Trees always inspire me. As a visual artist, “feeling inspired by trees” is my go to theme. Trees share so much with me and all this finds expression in my paintings. So many of my canvases include trees and my pointillist style allows an intimacy with them through exploring how everything is connected in the woods. In painting, my mission is about images of light, joy and harmony of the canvas. Trees foster this endlessly. When I wonder about what to paint I simply ask the trees.
