I admire athletes’ persistence, their diligence for the everyday workout and their concentration the moment of the game. I get inspiration from photographs of athletes working out or competing as a team, group or unit. I try to capture and depict in my paintings the stiffness and strength of their bodies, the tension of the moment as well as the effort and the concentration that the moment requires.
