My desire to create is fed by our beautiful planet and its phenomena. While working spontaneously and intuitively, I try to demonstrate the earths relationships with objects and its first civilizations.
Using mainly acrylic, I paint rows of textured colors in an abstract style, referring to the sedimentary layers of the earth. I also work with found objects, and sometimes insert them in my artwork.
Like the archaeologists, I try to find treasures, in order to share my discoveries.
