Artist Statement

My artwork is the product of experimentation, curiosity, and exploration. It is abstract, but also deeply personal, reflecting my own journey, struggles and emotions. I am usually feeling lost in the process of painting, struggling to find a way out until that moment of clarity. I often find myself spending hours in my studio on the weekends, just experimenting with acrylic colors, textures, materials, and styles, such as mixed media and modeling paste. I apply these techniques to my artwork to tell stories, which explore the depths of ideas beyond our physical reality.

 

Art is a universal language that connects us all. I find it therapeutic to be creative and express myself in a way that I might not be able to with words. I enjoy being creative and making my own rules when it comes to my art, exploring what inspires me most.
