Through color and composition, I aim for harmony, simplicity and joy: My paintings are bright yet delicate and they combine realism and abstraction; I seek to find balance, resulting in a poetic, almost ethereal atmosphere.
I’m a dreamer and that is the essence of my art. My goal as an artist is to remind us to see the beauty around us and inspire to follow our dreams. The message I want to convey through my work is one of childlike wonder, self-acceptance and inner peace.
My work is about contrasts and polarities, freedom and union. It’s about beauty, dreams and finding your place in this world. It’s is about adapting and belonging, about companionship and purpose. It examines duality and the relationship between light and dark, finding the middle path between extremes.
My inspiration comes mostly from nature. I am fascinated by light and movement which account for my choice of subjects. My expression is influenced by my relationships, beliefs and environment and by the numerous places I’ve lived in. My interest lies in capturing the soul of things rather than the details, always playing the line between abstraction and realism.
I paint predominantly with a palette knife in mixed media and presently shifting towards encaustic work. I love to learn, experiment and explore, leading me to discover new techniques and continuing to bring me fresh and unique results.
