I transform the space, light and shadows, shapes and movements into my compositions that look like mysterious landscapes. The vibration of colors and texture have a significant role in my painting. I portrait light and air with it’s magic transparency.
Art is in constant motion. My creativity floats and expresses Energy and Movement. My Art is the mirror of my Soul. It is a motion.
Through Nature I see the Soul of the Higher Power.
The inspirations come and go, Spirit dances with colors. Where do these images come from?
I have no answer It must come from within...
When the inspiration comes I feel like a channel. And I invite all of these miraculous things to come and float like a stream through me. I choose to remain open and let it happen.
Art has it's own life and showing Art makes sense of it.
