WORDS BY THE AUTHOR / My motto is: “Our imperfections make our personalities.” My tools are the spot and the line. My ‘main receipt’ is no fear of making mistakes as only through mistakes, you can find a way to something new and unusual.

Guided by plastic expressiveness, I depict the real world. I love form and composition, especially multi-figured composition. They inspire me in my creative work.
