Artist Statement
The amount of creativity that was storaged inside me, creates unexpected pieces that are abstract visualization of all my previous experiences. As an artist I create work that reflects my inner emotions. I capture movement and life.
I use traditional materials, acrylic paint, charcoal, pastels, ink. I experiment with them to find what suprising final effect can be achieved.
Painting is a kind of meditation to eliminate the negative thoughts that can cloud the mind. Blue of the sea is a source of inspiration to me. 
My process involves working on several pieces at the time to create dialogue between them, moving from one to another allows me develop the ideas and pushing the boundaries. This is no going back or correcting process.
