My work is about layers, and the relationship between micro- and macro-cosmos. The structure of cells and blood vessels under the skin make me think of groups of islands in the ocean and rugged coastlines. My challenge is to pull these two worlds together in one image. In this, skin is the guideline and source of inspiration. I enjoy picking and scratching in the surface of the paint. For me, damage and corrosion add to the beauty and soul of the work.

At times I use animal skins in my work. The series 'Skin-scapes' of 2008 show the layers of the skin, and the view under the skin. In 2009 'Earth-scapes' came about. The source of inspiration for this series of Coastlines was satellite pictures and photographs of the earth. In 2013 a new series was born; Layers.
