When working in the studio I like to watch and feel the time pass while drawing lines. To line a page is a pleasant meditative activity giving space to imaginary travels. Lines form a background and inspiration for stories on various themes populated by gnomes and fairies that have familiar faces.

I don’t plan ahead, the line itself creates the composition. The hand can lead and let the mind rest. Multitude of thoughts ideas plans float around the room surrounding me. I only have to lift the pencil, then lower it to the paper and the journey begins.

Outcome should always be a welcome surprise. The process is improvisational and requires glimpses into the past and the future.
