From the artist

I am attracted to the hustle and bustle of happening and activities in the scene that bring joy, laughter and life to the place. I use spontaneity as driving force in my approach to painting. In the process, I think I am in complete control of my work, but as it turns me with chaotic order, it becomes a struggle to create a sense of understanding with the chaos.
