“Nature is my favorite subject, because I have grown up close to nature and country fields. When I paint, I try to mediate how I feel about nature
and its beauty, all of which I enjoy the most. I find inspiration in gardens, such as Claude Monet’s garden in Giverny, France and the winter garden and its orchids in New York. I try to evoke the essence of imagination with oil paint
or watercolour. Nature, its colors and shapes, is my method of expressing aesthetic experiences."
