I see the world as a place of beauty and magic, full of symbols, metaphors, and hidden meanings.
But it's the inner world where I've always felt most at home, roaming the enigmatic and veiled landscape of thoughts, emotions, and dreams. I'm drawn to express this inner world through my paintings, and turn those dreams into reality.
The subconscious mind is a deep, sometimes dark well that reflects ancient human feelings. Tapping into these emotions can resonate with people on a profound level. By manifesting my feelings and visions through art, I hope to awaken some of the forgotten, primeval memories of the human evolution.
I'm attracted to images that are haunting and powerful and I feel that describes my work well. On the surface, multiple layers shift, disintegrate, and transform with energy, while the eye perceives depth and a path into the distance.
