"Being in nature and spending time with the animals recharges me and gives me peace and joy. It brings me closer to God. At the same time I love the urban colors and diversity of the city; the scents, noises and culture, which invigorates and inspires me. Another big inspiration is people. I love people. Everyone is so different and uniquely made. What makes people the way they are? Each person leaves an imprint on me, and that deeply reflects my paintings."
