I love expressing myself thru painting and drawing,

 and sometimes I like to do a combination of both.

By looking at the mystery in forms and color, light and shape,

I interpret what surrends me, and translate it to canvas

by my marks, strokes and colors.

 

The paintings open a poetic vein,

where multilayered images arise, and our reality is questioned.

 

I develop forms that do not always follow logical criteria,

but are based on my own associations,

and then let the viewer make new personal associations.

 

My work is based on inspiring situations:

visions that reflect a sensation of curiosity or serene contemplation,

combined with subtle details of odd or eccentric, humoristic elements.

 

I want to tell a story of life, mystery and hope.
