About the Artist

"Light is what itís all about. I love light. Or rather, I love what light does. Light creates colours, shadows, shapes and edges. After all, without light, there would be no art. There would be nothing to see and nothing to paint. Light creates, the artist only responds to the light with whatever tools and skills he has available. The art I make is the result of how light and my eyes collaborate as well as how I feel about what the light is doing that particular day. It may be beautiful colours that catch my eye and start a dialog or interesting shapes or lost and found edges or fascinating shadows. But itís always about light. Whatever the light is creating that day and how I feel about it. Iím just very lucky to be in a romance with light."
