In my blog I try to give a bit of insight into how my love for discovering new places over the years has done so and continues to affect me as an artist... and how my reflections upon returning to the studio affects the way I experience future travels.

England, Ireland and Wales

I Spent a year in England in 2005; mostly in London but I also travelled all over England with my highschool friend Jenny whom I reconnected with after almost 20 years.

What made the biggest impression on me during that unforgettable trip were Anthony Gormley’s sculptures. The steel, 20 meter (66ft) tall Angel of the North in Gateshead and equally as impressive, the 100 tidal cast-iron men installation titled “Another Place” on Crosby beach near Liverpool.

Later on, I travelled through Wales and Ireland, and it was the skyscapes that struck me the most.These led to a series of my first horizontal large scale paintings; in line with the expansive skies of the Isles.
