I use a range of different techniques (drawing, acrylic or oil on canvas, mixed media, assemblage). But what always has accompanied me and makes up this presentation, are watercolours.

Watercolours give me the possibility to capture fast changing lighting conditions in a spontaneous moment. Moreover, they adapt well to an unsteady rhythm of life.
