I make paintings and drawings. By looking at the enticing mystery,
in forms and color, light and shape.
I find a humour that echoes our own vulnerabilities.
The paintings open a poetic vein,
where multilayered images arise, and our reality is questioned.
I try to 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 mystery and also optimism.
