Conversation a 10 person set of printed coffee cups, 2008 Finland

I work with a clean mind stopping to see, feel and hear. Working gives a great base to thought, where an abstraction is an escape from what one already knows.

Working is to get to know the unknown. It will lead towards spiritual wholeness, feeling of freedom and balance. Creativity is not stable. It needs continuous effort, because only with awareness one can see.

Honesty, presence, time and feeling will create a bond between the picture and a viewer. As means of expression I use painting, photography, graphics and installations.
