Taidemaalari Turun piirustuskoulusta, 1981-85. Työskentelyäni hallitsee pohjoinen melankolia, jonka olen taivuttanut puhtaan maalauksen kielelle. Samanaikaisesti sekä esittävää että ei-esittävää abstraktioon pohjautuvaa maisemamaalausta. Taustana tässä ovat suomalaisuuteni lisäksi jatko-opintoni Pariisissa, (1988-90) ja kymmenen Euroopan pääkaupungissa eli Brysselissä vietettyä vuotta. Paluumuutto 2006. Pitkällinen poissaoloni on muokkautunut läsnäoloksi teideteoksiini. Syntyjäni olen "Lapin poikkii"...
