Artist’s Statement

The starting points are my experiences, powerful memories of a journey or a photograph of a trip or landscape. Combining them, I try to create new worlds.

The way my work is done, materials and size vary: I mostly paint on fabric with acrylic or water colors, draw with charcoal or brush, from 30 cm to four meters.

I am currently building sculptures from a wide variety of materials, mostly from aluminum welding in previous years, from smaller candlesticks to five-meter works in public spaces.
