"I like to make colorful painting abstractions. Images of people and landscapes present themselves and become characters and starting reference points to complex narratives and visual questions. I am interested in creating my own visual language, answering the notion of what is and what is not. The themes range from beauty, music, catharsis, social injustice, nature, time and community."
