I am inspired by many things, nature, music, art, people and life in general. For over 30 years I have been involved in the art of sculpture and I have worked with natural stone. A new sculpture emerges from an initial idea or a production concept. Some ideas fly to me and still others come from earlier sculptures. Every sculpture grows in a long process that can take years before I can't change anything that could lead to improvement. Many influences come together, the material stone, the coincidental or the result of doing. At the end there is a sculpture that expresses something that I did not know before and, in the best case, looks as if it has always been there. A work of art that speaks for itself and expresses something that cannot be represented otherwise, it is magical. You can try to describe it in language, but it will never be the same.
