"The first minute I tried watercolor paint it immediately captivated me. Of course, I have also tried various other media such as acrylics, gouache and pastels but nothing has convinced me as did watercolor paint. Watercolor is a very spontaneous and unpredictable medium. It teaches me every day that you cannot control everything in your life and that letting loose is an option. Because of its unpredictability watercolor from my point of view is indeed very difficult to deal with and therefore it constantly challenges me as an artist. Watercolor paint and water build a fascinating flow that gives me utmost freedom in my creativity. If you let loose at the right point in your creative process and 'let it flow' you will receive brilliant results that emerge completely out of your spontaneity."
