When I start painting, the "preliminary work" is already done. The gate to the secrets of the heart is broken open and I am "channeled" over the borders of thinking, beyond customs and "of/f senses". The courage to freedom humbly cries out at the top of my lungs in silent grace. New truths find me as a medium and fulfill themselves. My paintings draw from the soul and communicate through the mind, the goal in view....

Like my great idols (Picassó among others), I have "basically always done only one thing: Love"...
