I work intuitively with my feelings, with my unconscious, without necessarily knowing what my work is âaboutâ.
Sometimes there are symbols that find expression in my work for long periods, revealing themselves through time, but like all symbols they cannot ultimately be explained.
What I am essentially interested in is mystery and discovery.
