I love to paint oil colours because they are smooth and I can paint in several coatings. There is a 3D effect in my paintings. I love colours to express the positive attitude to my life. I believe that there is always a door open, when I believe it. There is no sence to see the negative things in life, because all the people around me has also negative things in there lives.

In 2006 I began to paint oil colour on velvet. I like to play with the structure from the velvet. There is a special effect on the painting with velvet. I love to paint animals, to bring their soul and character on the canvas or velvet, to give them life that when you pass the painting you are just thinking, this animal has it moved.

Also the landscapes and citiescapes, I dont like to copy from fotos, i like that the people can smell the woods or the salt water of the sea, hear the sound of the birds and the hooves galloping over the ground. Then I reach my goal.I reach my goal when the painting is more vivid than the fotos, when the people stand there, look and forget the time.
