ALL ART IS BORN OUT OF PASSION. WITHOUT PASSION THERE IS NO ART.
All art is born out of passion; visual art, literature, music and crafts. Without passion there is no art. Preparing art is hard work, requiring the artist's total attention and solitude. Art does not spring to existence from nothing. It is a process that is created and developed within man over a long period of time. The beginning, the roots of creativity, may be anywhere from six months to many years back in time. It is something, an event, an experience, an observation, which triggers thoughts in the subconscious. For an artist, it may be a good or a bad experience. It may be the environment in which art is created. I study nature: the landscape, the light, the shadows, the forms, the structure and the mathematical orders. All this inspires me in my work as an artist.
