My first ventures into the world of letters were made using the calligraphic pen, which incidentally was my father's medium as well. Gradually I changed from written to freely drawn and painted letters on paper, canvas and walls. Pattern, rhythm and colour are very important in my work.
When I work on canvas - which means a bigger format - I prefer a technique of constructive exploration, layer after layer after layer of paint: for me a ritual of tranquillity.
