I love to paint oil colours because they are smooth and I can paint in several coatings. So there is a threedimensional effect in my paintings.
I love colours to express the positive attitude to my live. I believe that there is all the time a door open when I believe it. There is no sence to see the negative things in live because all the peoble around me has also negative things in there live.
In 2006 I began to paint oilcolour on velvet. I like to play with the structure from the velvet. There is a special effect on the painting with velvet.
There were peoble telling me to paint abstract things than I would have the better chance to sell it. But I love to paint animals, to bring there soul and character on the canvas or velvet, to give them live that when you pass the painting you are just thinking: ‘ups, this animal has it moved?’
Also the landscapes and citiescapes have to live, I want really not to copy only fotos but that the peoble can smell the woods or the salt water of the sea, hear the sound of the birds and the hoofs galopping over the floor. Then I reached my goal.
I reach my goal when the painting is more vivid than the fotos, when the peoble stand there, look at and forget the time.
The story of my artist-name is a short marriage with an egyptian-man who had this name.
It sounds special so I kept this name as my artist-name.
