"The most beautiful paintings do not originate in the mind. They are an expression of the inner essence, of the soul. I like to apply paint in what I can only describe as a random fashion, always keeping a sense of balance on the canvas, and mixing colors in a nice way. Mostly, I like to cooperate with the paint and see what appears. I do not usually have a theme in mind when I start to paint. I always like the finished product, and I have learned not to judge the painting in process. To me, painting is also a lesson in trust. It is trusting that you will always like the end product, so that you can just be totally free during the process."
