Personal Style is about personality. Being an artist is about being free to express your personality through art.
Art is about freedom and creative expression.
Art is a lifestyle not just an activity. Being an artist therefore means implementing a lifestyle that favors creativity, impulsion and freedom.
I am guided by passion, by the need to create. And my emotions and dreams are amplified by art.
I really agree to famous saying from Edgar Degas - "Art is not what you see, but what you make other see"
I have been rummaging with colors, with pencils, crayons, brushes for over 30 years. My deep-rooted love for art began when I was 5. I spent majority of my childhood bringing my imaginations to life. This laid the foundation for who I am today.
Much of my work is inspired by sublime things around me, bold colors I observe, and beauty in the humdrum. I’m proud to share the highlights of my work on this site.
As an artist; it is important to have conversations. Please don't hesitate in talking to me.
