I have been drawing and painting since my early childhood and realized that with this I could realize another mode of expression besides language. Making visual art gave me the opportunity to explore the 'unknown' without having to explain it. Herein now lies my talent, development and passion.

My inspirational examples: the painters Willem de Kooning, Elsworth Kelly, Barnett Newman and Yves Klein.

All that is known is potential for something new if you look at it differently... reality is inexhaustible.
