Artist’s Statement

In my graphic pictures there´s almost always this same woman. She has joined my journey for almost my half life. Her journey is sleeping images, hopes, moments in the nature and small briefs. If you go really close to her she might answer you back and you will find a little in you in me...

To grow as heal, a human has to be broken first.
