We are all tied down in life with everything around us, as castaway on a deserted island. SOS symbolize mans cry for help, as a castaway on a deserted island.

I see my art as my expression, I don't have any art degree, in fact, I know nothing about art. All I know is that to "create"- art its free, art is expression and art is not bound by rules. I paint and sculpts free from any rules or forms, only as I feel it.
The organic evolution of nature and what we place in it, combined, make for an interesting visual dynamic setting. Discarded by our ocean, as she disgorge it at high tide, I utilized the yield materiel in a representation in my imagined setting.
My work presently is my expression of the oceans mysteries which hold a great fascination, and as she gives us a gimps from her inner soul.
I don't choose color, theme or form. Nature and natural features joins into my creations, as each piece unconscious becomes my expression.
My focus is predominantly land, sea and nature. I use aerosol spray cans as my paint medium, largely to the natural feel and the lack of control delivered by spray cans. I sculpt with what is around me, sometime a stone or block of wood can lay for months before, it will reveal itself as to what it wants to become.
