Everything I do is strongly linked to my passionate connection with nature and its surroundings. Nature has no boundaries, which constantly inspires me. Nature is forever changing, always discovering itself in new ways, adapting to environments and moving in the circle of life. I have become a peaceful observer and enjoy every brief moment just before everything around me changes. Working with diﬀerent experimental techniques and also paying great attention to working with coincidence as an important part of my work , the reason being for me is to feel the essence of nature. In addition to this foundation I experiment with colors, shapes, textures and materials until I discover my own inner truths.
