Abstract

Why do I make art? Since my childhood I have buried myself in other worlds, be it by reading or by drawing and painting. I paint to express myself, to hide myself in the process of making the work.

My work is strong, expressive and joyful. Especially my abstract work – which is deeply informed by my study and constant drawing practice – comes from deep within me and is a response to the world around me. Without studying my surroundings, by sketching, drawing inspired by observation, reading, I could not make these works.
