My painting truly reflects my personality. In my work is possible to appreciate the joy of live and the permanent search of color which are brought by my childhood memories.

Through my wonderful traveling experiences around the world, I have always associated the places where I have been with certain colors. Those colors are captured in my work.

At the beginning of my career I was mostly interested in the forms of the objects and how to exactly represent them as they were.

Nowadays my paintings have developed toward a greater focus on the colors rather than forms. These colors come to the fabric as a result of my emotions and inspiration, without necessarily matching the reality.
