” Reflections on female relationships, complexities of emotions and feelings, family and relatives. Family and people I have known, representations, figuratively, abstractly or both.

Working on, sometimes a tender palette, sometimes a more vibrant one, capturing a glimpse of female feelings, strong but also subtle. For me, the female psyche are represented by clouds and drips of paint highlighting the rich texture of the canvas. I enjoy using natural powder pigments forming shadows and lights that are changing and transforming itself, colors interactions altering the final results, forming new details, totally unexpected. I think it’s fascinating to see how all those colors and forms take me to different aspects of my own journey on this life. ”
