ARTIST STATEMENT 

 

When I paint, I am particularly interested in expressing my wonder for nature. My art explores what I have lived, transformed by my emotions and refuses to be a copy of what I see. The colors harmonize, blend together and at times are structured into defined shapes. I work in cohesion with water, accepting what it offers me, and taking it elsewhere to evoke an animate or inanimate object. My painting is a part of my soul, bringing together the emotions, memories, and sensations that I have experienced.

 

I love to take risks, to provoke those accidents that this wonderful medium has to offer. However I do not leave everything to chance and plan my compositions, looking for balance through use of value and colour.

 

I enjoy mixing the figurative with the abstract, inviting the spectator to finish the story that I started. I prefer to work from my imagination and am interested in art that shows the artist's vision of the world as they see it.

 

For me, painting with watercolours is a never-ending adventure and a never-ending love affair
