Light Stories – by this I mean both stories (and the paintings telling them) which have a light touch to them as opposed to heavy and complicated ones and stories about light. In these two meanings, Light Stories constitute our everyday life without us noticing it much. We are trained to focus on the the dark spots in the world and the heavy stories because these are the the ones which we immediately recognise as important. But they are only half of the story of our lives. I am trying to find a way to show that, beside darkness and heaviness, there is also light and lightness.

These are some of recent paintings; most of them are for sale over in the shop. On my blog I post sketches from my sketchbooks, progress shots of paintings as well as throughts on colours and gear.
