        Sounds of Nature, The Pink Bells ,120 x 160cm, 2018
In "Sounds of Nature', natural sound is translated on paper into lines that suggets movements, as well as into areas of colour. I believe that the realm of plants produces imperceptible sounds that will override those of the human world, I think they will be ultimately more persistent.

Mixed media: washed ink with pastel and acrylic paint on paper
 I started drawing at an early age. In my teens I followed private classes with a number of different artists. When I was seventeen, I visited Italy for the first time, admiring the work of Renaissance artists like Michelangelo, del Sarto and many others. Compositional form in Renaissance art places the human individual centrally in a landscape, this creates a sense of peace that I like very much and see mirrored in my work. Beside the Japanese wash ink technique with masters like Sesshu Toyo and Hasegawa Tohaku, I have a great affinity with Dutch masters from the Golden Age. And artists in the 18th century  like the Italien famous female Italien pastelpainter Rosalba Carriera and the French artist Quentin de la Tour. I strive for harmony and unity in my work, using the creative freedom that is now available to artists.
