“I stand in front of the sea, my eyes following individual waves and drawing scribbly lines one after another to capture their movement and spirit. When I’m drawing waves I’m caught up in their energy and the joy.

The individual wave drawings are cartoon-like and the layout is like a storyboard. In this painting parts of the drawings have been highlighted and shaded so that they have become something else.


Of movement, of drawing, of thought, of expression…”
