Under the Sign of the Sun
190CM X 120CM, MIXED MEDIA ON BELGIAN LINEN
As you now know I am born under the sun sign of Leo, a fact I couldn’t align with for a very long time.
People would always say I would need to be the centre of attention, but I was for a very long time shy and stayed in the background, an outsider at school, rather observing from the periphery.
In my original family it was not supported behaviour to express emotions or feelings, so I had learnt to be quiet.
When my first son Julius was born he brought a lot of sound with him, expressing himself loudly and clearly and with that he
challenged me to also bring in my own feelings again, expressing myself.
It is when I paint, expressing from my heart and from what I feel within myself, around myself and also in other realms, that I am aligned with my Leo sun.
