The research focuses on the human figure and nature, both experienced as everlasting and tender forces in contrast and harmony with the transience of existence.
The works are often made up of spiritualistic and unnatural images that form dreams and tales of that which is hidden from the eye. The outcome originates from the first photographic images of the late 1800s and early 1900s, that are used as a starting point for the creation of tales and suggestions that come up naturally during the creative process. 
Canvasses, often large ones, used for the experience of and the longing for existence. 
Drawings and crayons on paper of eerie shapes and human masks. 
Man’s being and his rising, shining and fading.
