About my artwork
My work portrays the memories in my daily life in an abstract, figurative and poetic atmosphere. I create my work using the medium of Painting and Photography. My work is abstract, figurative and intuitive, inspired by people I meet each day, things that happen to me, and places I have been. I capture memories, feelings and my imagination as my visual diary. My work is an allegory and metaphor of what goes around my life.
