During the process of writing/producing my Short Films I felt: "This is a story that needs to be told. I have to express these emotions in a tangible art form. And when the films were finished, I felt this sense of 'relief'. New art was 'born'."
When I see other artists telling similar stories that relate to 'We Dance', 'We Love' or 'We War' it makes my heart soar.
Read the stories below of the painter Anke Lenearts and the photographer Keef Williams who are making their own art, but telling similar stories.
Happy New Year!!

I asked the talented painter Anke Lenaerts to paint a painting based on my films 'We Dance', 'We War' and 'We Love'. Turned out she had just finished painting three paintings based on those themes, even before I asked her. Wow! Synchronicity! I love how she captured all these emotions on a canvas. In November I bought these from her. Check out more of her breathtaking art at ankelenaerts.be

Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time.
