In each work, I intend to reflect to the viewer something innovative, a way for a stroke to the work, composition and the use of color, so that the work can pick up all the energy possible from what I want to show, and the viewer can feel the spirit captured in the piece.
I try to evolve and combined my experiences to the everyday learning, not to lose perspective of the spirit of what we are, the atmosphere that surrounds us, translate it into a work and for others see what it means.
In my constant search, I try to express what my conscious, subconscious, my body and my spirit dictates. And it’s wonderful how all merged to tell something, that it could be understood as an all.
