“I came  from a musical background prior to Visual Art studies, and I bring these  experiences to my art process. My paintings can be described as an abstract landscape and they derive from childhood memories.

“I started painting and drawing very early. Listening to my Father’s storytelling, looking at the sky and surrounding landscape, being connected to nature created strong memories which also are largely associated with music that I grew up with as a young piano player.  My memories encompass musical and visual aspect which influence each other and manifest in a process of creation.

“I hope that evocative side of my works will help the viewers respond to it and become part of it. I want viewers to like their own experience of ‘being in the painting’ and find it a place for contemplation and solace.”
