I love to paint oil colours because they are smooth and I can paint in several coatings. So there is a three dimensional effect in my paintings. I don’t do sketches on the canvas, I just begin to paint. I learned for myself that sketches block my creativity, so I just begin with the painting directly.

A curator from Creative Concept Inc. describes in my paintings is an understated incandescence and that my style is both contemporary and classic all at once. It places me in a artistic realm that is somehow entirely familiar. When someone looks at my paintings there is a vision that resonates with the viewer long after viewing.

I love colours to express the positive attitude to my live. I believe that there is all the time a door open when I believe it. There is no sense to see the negative things in live because all the people around me has also negative things in there live.

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. It is also a very rare and difficult style because you really have to pay attention where you paint, you can not correct it and because of the structure you have to be very exact.

There were people telling me to paint abstract things than I would have the better chance to sell it. But I love to paint animals, to bring there soul and character on the canvas or velvet, to give them live that when you pass the painting you are just thinking: „ups, this animal has it moved?“

Also the landscapes and cityscapes have to live, I want really not to copy only fotos but that the people can smell the woods or the salt water of the sea, hear the sound of the birds and the hoofs galloping over the floor. Then I reached my goal.

I reach my goal when the painting is more vivid than the fotos, when the people stand there, look at it and forget the time.

The story of my artist-name is a short marriage with an Egyptian who had this name. It sounds special so I kept this name as my artist-name.
