The last few years I have been focussing on developing a new contemporary style. In addition, I searched for a theme that gives me the opportunity to develop a clearly recognisable style. The result is the series ‘Portraits of Life’, based on true stories. With my artwork I want to reflect on the life of the persons we want to remember. Without losing reality, giving them an expressive identity. My intent is to elicit an emotional response without dictating to the viewer what they should or shouldn't be feeling.
