My pictures are an interpretation of my experiences: events, objects, people, and time, what has made me who I am. The motifs are diverse, ranging from domestic scenes to events of international importance.

My painting conveys a profound respect for Life and conveying life through pictorial construction. I seek a harmony as well as a transformation of the everyday into something that is mysterious and beautiful.
