Artist statement

I paint mostly with watercolors and oils on wood. I am always trying to create my pieces with the least toxic media possible in order to work clean and sustainably.

Inspired by the magical woods I was raised in and the darkness of my own inner world, I explore the union between utopian scenarios with the emotional strength of mental diseases. The unknown, the human subconscious, the fragility of the mind and our undeniable connection to nature are the constant path in my work. When creating new works, I draw inward for autobiographical themes linked with the beauty of animals and botanical elements; using the symbology of certain objects, animals and flowers to subtly show my inner feeling.

I'm open to any kind of projects as my wish is reaching people's feelings so they can emphatize and view themselves in my work. Because of that, I'm flexible about my art and works.
