I began painting as a means of self-expression and to develop a deeper connection to myself and the world around me.

I find inspiration everywhere: in people, in relationships, in architecture, and even in mundane objects that present me with opportunities to investigate lines, texture, form, and colour.


Usually my work is developed by layering different types of media, including acrylic paint, collage, and raw, expressive drawings with pencils and crayons. As each painting develops its own story, it will start to make suggestions, and it will be up to me to capture these moments so that I can tell my own authentic and unique story through layers upon layers . At that point, I will carefully think about whether or not the painting is finished.
