Creativity for me is a way of living, a kind of ritual, a work full of shifting impressions, experience, and reflections.

In my artworks, I often design a world of memories as if from diaries, wishes, dreams, or letters. With signs and textures, I organize the main movement of the composition that most responds to my soul rhythms. Humans and nature are only perceived from context. I leave space for the interpretation of the viewer.
