sculptures
 
The sculptures are produced by modelling chamotte clay around a frame-work of iron wires and pieces of wood. After drying, the casting itself is put out to a professional foundry. There, a template is made and the figure is cast in neolith stone. The stone figure is then covered with a bronze coating which lends it either greenish or brownish shades.
No more than five copies are produced of each sculpture.
paintings

The paintings are built up by applying oil paint layer over layer with a pallet knife. The transparent colours which thus arise reflect the typical texture of an old wall or sun-baked house. Bright colours are used rather than faint ones. Usually, several paintings are in process all at the same time. In the still-lives, other materials are used besides oil paint, such as acryl.

portraits

Portraits are painted, drawn, or cast in bronze. The technique of making portraits in bronze is the same as that of sculptures. Because pictures are taken all around there is no need for endless posing sessions.

drawings

Charcoal on paper or canvas

travel impressions Travelling throughout France and Italy I drew a number of typical locations from life; most of the drawings are made in black ink on paper.
