"Painting is how I explore thoughts, feelings and memories, this search is guided by curiosity and aims to understand the world around me. The human figure is central in my work, through it, I express the complex fabric of the experiences, rituals and emotions that make us human. I'm fascinated by light, and by water; how they can change our perceptions and affect our moods”
