Biography

For me art is meant to pose questions, make you feel something. An essential part of appreciating art is that instant connection at the encounter. I am fascinated by its unique ability to connect with the soul of the person who looks at it and to give them the opportunity to see something very personal and different every time. An artwork is like a living universe, it has a powerful energy within which you can feel when you are close.

In terms of art style I identify as a contemporary NaïveArt artist. I am currently a proud member of the Association of British Naive Artists - ABNA.

People who look at my paintings are often reminded of the iconographic style used in the portrayal of saints. Most of my paintings are related to spirituality and tempt you to escape in an imaginary world filled with colour and emotion.

inspiration

Fairytales, myths and legends, dreams and stories.

medium

My signature media is a type of water-colours called 'honey watercolours' which not only have extremely bright pigmentation but also allows me to build up texture: layering. In some of my videos you can see behind the scenes.
