Mainly interested in abstract, semi-abstract and surrealism painting, my tools are very basic; brushes, palette knives and both oil and acrylic colors. Each one of my paintings is a journey beyond the visible or known; they are reflections of raw emotions and dreams. Being in a high spiritual and emotional state while producing the artwork has a direct effect on the imagery I create. The choice of colors; is also affected by my spiritual and emotional state such as warmth, serenity, acceptance and hopefulness. Painting widens my imagination and reveals secrets and mysteries of the soul. Art equals life to me, the process of making art equals the process of breathing.
