About the artist

My abstract works become a significant part of work itself. It has a main role in my aesthetic practise. I don’t work to create meanings. Paintings arise on the basis of my inspirations from my environment and travel. They refer to the body and mind of each individual.

I use my color and space as language, my work is alive with emotion through the movement of the brushwork and the luscious layered colors. Much like memories, each painting is filled with layer upon layer of paint, building a rich history into each piece. Although it’s a play and game of life to experience and express.
