STATEMENT

 

I am driven by a quest of authenticity, peace and freedom. My work is spiritual and emotional. I am particularly interested in  finding harmonious compositions and color combinations.

 

My inspiration comes from inner voice, memories, people, animals, my own pictures and found pictures in diverse media.

 

I like working by themes and I am currently developing a series of paintings on  animals totems. 

 

In the whole, I wish to bring a meditative experience to the viewers that might be ethereal or emotional. I am mainly influenced by American abstract expressionism, the Color Field movement and Symbolism.
