I have been a painter since I know myself. My stories' characters represent themselves through vibrant colours, impressive eye contact and exotic body shapes; the same way I express my passion for art by loading my brush with paint. They seem purely innocent, like peace coming after a throbbing storm.
I use traditional oil on cotton canvases. I love creating portraits because nothing could illustrate the continuous connection between sensitivities and concerns of a person in the past and existing.
