Technique and artistic approach

My painting is a blend of figurative and abstract art and I compose without boundaries – embracing the unexpected and the accidental. This improvised approach allows me to explore beyond reality within imaginary universes of my own. I surrender to the feeling: the movement, the intuition and inspiration flow from the colours emerging on the canvas. Guided by an energetic movement and an undefinable dynamic, I automatically and intuitively integrate text into my art creating abstract images that appeal to the subconscious mind of the viewer. Passion, desire, joy, sorrow…

My paintings are a reflection of myself, filled with musical rhythms and mystery complimented by tenderness. Each work takes you on a journey... enjoy the ride!
