“My work is often inspired by nature and architecture. But I am also able to respond to customer preferences and ideas and will work with provided images, letters, etc. The photo edits are printed on several media, including photo paper, canvas and aluminum backing, mostly processed afterwards with paint. Sometimes photographs are included in paintings with collage or transfer techniques. I enjoy the creative process of revealing new, sometimes abstract, perspectives and views by combining colorful and lively paintings with one or more concrete photographic images.”
