My work is based on an ideal image which I pursue of the world and which is reflected in my paintings.
Through my art, I isolate that moment of fantastic reality and eternalize it , making it accesible to others. Often a peace of work encapsulates an idea or feeling I have been developing for months, and finally given physical form in my work.
I was encouraged to develop my interest in art by traveling around the world, where I saw different cultures and scenes,, visited international art museums and gallerys.
Much of my work is influenced by my love for nature and my desire to immerse myself in it , presenting the forest of my dreams with it foliage , plants and fragrance.
Yet my main driving force is to create something vivid that seems connected to life, so that my viewers can feel instantly connected to it.
