I am constantly traveling between two worlds, the spiritual one and the world of matter. My paintings are the bridge, where they meet each other . In this way my feelings, reality as I see it and the abstract world of imagination are materialized by the strokes of my brush on the canvas.
The pleasure is what I always seek in my life. I am in constant motion, mostly laughing and sometimes crying. Through travelling and meeting new people I meet new people and learn from them. I explore, analize and get fascinated by every colour. In my work I find the balance in this mosaic of colours, feelings and emotions.
I have the passion for portraits and abstractions. I express myself on canvas, using strong, long lasting dyes which allows me to capture the dynamics of life. That is why I love fluorescent colours and I am delighted how they glow under ultraviolet light. I love using sunny hues. Color is what matters. The process of painting is spontaneous, with no prior sketches nor plans. I avoid over-intellectualisation in my work and let my subconscious self guide the brush until the perfect beauty emerges.
