“In my work, I focus on a diversity of themes that are inextricably linked. The feeling of being in between two worlds, of being there but not really fully present. The juxtaposition of things that tie me down versus real freedom.
I combine portraits of people, stills and fragments from nature. These combinations can be surprising, strange or simply beautiful. They create a story where my dream world and reality come together. I aim for a poetic quality that creates a compelling flow through my work."
