To me, the art is one of the most important pillars holding up the world and keeping it going. I get most of my inspiration from: thoughts, experiences and people, and in natures many extreme expressions. The things that shapes us, builds us up and breaks us down again; the essence of ourselves, our thoughts and actions.
