‘I paint colorfully to show the world the positive influence of colors and the power of strokes, creating an imaginary scenario based on nature and freedom state of mind. Art is limitless and I'm committed to make the viewer closer to his heart, manipulating shapes and feelings through the selection and composition of color. More than anything. My paintings are feelings as much as they are imaginary. I recognize the value in self-expression, so find I find a way to let my inner self be expressed on the outside.
