I look upon my pictures as tiny pebbles or grains of sand on a vast landscape. From afar everything is vague and similar to everything else. But if you pick one up and look at it closely it might bear signs of an identity. I tend to keep things earthbound - in colour, style and theme. But my approach is a subjective one, based on personal attachment to the depicted and this, I believe, shows through my work, even if I had been aiming at an objective statement. I am influenced by impressionists and expressionists and work without paying much attention to rules other than my own awareness of imperfection and the attempt to overcome it.
