About the artist:

Art is my preferred way to communicate. Growing up I realized that painting, creating and building are a necessity for me to express my thoughts and feelings. My work is marked by movement and color, in close relationship with my inner self, my imagination and thoughts.

Even though I am academically trained in the arts, I consider myself self-taught when it comes to painting. I enjoy investigating the behaviour of materials, textures and mixtures. The noticeable break with repetition present in the composition of my work, exudes spontaneity, perhaps the most characteristic trait of my personality. Creating art is almost like a ritual that helps me to abstract my thoughts in a process of losing myself between the canvas and the materials. I want my art to reveal an inner universe of emotions and sensations - like an eternal dream.
