Having explored at length the deeper essence of the soul’s journey over the last seven years, I have now entered a new stage of imagemy life and of my painting.

Inspired by nature, humanity and life, I am now exploring a new world … the resulting artwork features layering, figurative storytelling paintings wrapped in gauze, with stitching detail.. Let yourself be immersed in emotion, fantasy and passion.
