"On these portraits (paintings and drawings), I strive to invite the viewer to watch a monolog as a spectator to this one singular feeling that I experienced as a person.
Memories of the life around me, people who shape me, who intrigue me.
As a young painter my challenge is to create a mood using the medium. As a researcher and an eternal student I have attempted to use different materials and surfaces to work on, to push myself in different approaches to convey this impression. More often I choose to express myself in a visual language, as if in a spiritual dream , melancholic and sublime, thus Romanticist, working with normal life models and evoking a hint of drama, as If I was writing a poem in a canvas or paper, trying to capture the momentum in which I feel more connected to a specific feeling that I wanted to be expressed."
