About the author
"I believe it is a gift and privilege to have an opportunity to rouse feelings in others through painting. That is one passion I will never be able to give up...
I keep searching, experimenting and reinventing my individual style. Yet I realize that I’m most at-home capturing my feelings and boundless thoughts through considered emotional expression, manifesting in thick layers of oil on canvas. That is why most of my paintings are expressive leaning towards expressionism.
When I paint, I feel as if I exist in a different world, without restrictions for my imagination. The people, nature, and built environment I perceive and the sounds that I hear connect into a stream of emotions and visions. This composition comes together in my mind and a story is born on canvas. Painting is my language of freedom, where there is no right way to feel or think. The result is a fleeting snapshot of a feeling. Yet the painting moves the deepest imagination and invites the observer to share in these feelings and individualise them. For me, this is the true magic of painting – an unexplainable and fascinating process. “ – Audinga
