artist statement

“Painting is for me a way to manifest the communication of intimate concepts that words alone cannot carry. My pallet is a landmark where I feel the emotional exchange with each color that I use. I consider each new canvas an opportunity for me to stretch my capacity to find solutions and create beauty. My artwork becomes an intimate outlet to share the way I perceive the world; a place where I experience the magic of being present while giving life, in an non-linear way, to my desires, emotions, and intuitions.

I particularly enjoy the physical action of doing large format paintings where I can invite the viewer to experience fields of gratitude and joy towards life and nature, in the hidden dimension of the relationship between objects and space.”
