My life and art are full of happy contrasts. I'm part city, part country. Half modern, half vintage, 50% colorful and 50% neutral! The work I do is influenced by a passion and nostalgia for my city and an equally significant fondness for the fields where I grew up as a child. The idea for me is not to restrict myself to one subject, style or palette but to challenge myself in each of these areas.

Painting is a necessary creative outlet for me. It teaches me to put life on pause and become observant and aware of my surroundings, every moment, every shadow, every highlight. I think my paintings are a result of my desire to express gratitude for life and for freedom and my appreciation for simple and beautiful things.
