// Artist Statement //

I like to paint from my heart, and externalize what I feel inside. This is more than an artistic practice, it is a lifestyle that allows me to connect with my inner being in order to liberate the divine treasures hidden in my heart and share them with those around me..

Often I begin painting on a white canvas or on a background that I have prepared with the colours that inspire me at that particular moment. I use acrylic paints and mediums in order to create texture and an interesting effect. When I paint, I will have an image or words that I hear and which give meaning to what I am painting. This intuitive and spontaneous way of painting demands a certain abandon and confidence with no judgment or restriction of movement.
