TRAUMPRINZ – this blue and childish painting was one of the first. I wanted to create something innocent with undertones of violence. I always loved that the German word for dream is TRAUM. There is a hidden face in the painting.

MANIA – my first and favourite. I found my favourite medium with this one using chalk. I wanted something I could use expressively that would turn to dust in my hands.

MID FREQUENCY – Mid-Frequency is the first of a series inspired by frequency and MRI scans and healing. I suffered a head injury in 2009 and the healing was similar to a healing heart of which I had at the time of the painting. Its confusing and painful but there are shades of hope amongst distress.
