I am an artist who believes in giving pleasure to the senses with the sight of an image that brings joy and comfort to the soul. I paint images of which colors and shapes have impressed me the most. In other words, purely visual stimulation which I feel impelled to express and materialize on canvas.
I paint what I love, what makes my senses vibrate, no matter how complex an object or how simple: It can be a landscape, a distracted kid, roofs of an ancient town, a colorful plant, an autumn leaf, a succulent fruit or anything in Nature and daily life that brings in me the sheer urge for aesthetic expression. I’d like to be thought of as an artist whose work is pleasurable to watch. In other words, if I can brighten the viewer’s heart, then I have accomplished my goal.
