He displays fine art paintings that stand on their own as collectible works of art.
"Although I am mostly using oils, I constantly experiment with different styles and media. My work is best described as figurative although it is edging towards geometrical abstraction. My motifs are people, objects and places that have left impressions on me. I find inspiration in existentialism, impressionism, cubism and most of the other isms."
"When creating artwork, I am not thinking about the style but rather what I want to achieve. I am interested in “how things work” and I investigate this in different aspects of form, shape, light and colour."
