“Over the last 20 years, I have been finding my inspiration by observing and immerging myself into landscapes full of light and contrast. I try to gather the essential: the emotion of my senses, the energy and the poetry I find in them. In a world where noise and images are overwhelming, I would like to offer an escape towards an imaginary world, through intensity of colors, light and pictural writing (outlines and links). This is where sensibility and emotion will meet to create an infinite poetic allegory.

I use oil paints to enhance the density and depth of my colors, in order to obtain a warm and bright energy. The work on the aspect of the surface of the canvas brings strength and intensity to the paintings while the use of glazing brings lightness and fluidity. The outlines and links that run across my paintings represent human being in its strength and weakness. They are a heartbeat of life and suggest a musicality that allows each of us to draw their own path towards dream.”
