ABOUT ME
My paintings and drawings stem from either memory, or from quick sketches I make of people and animals around me. My focus is to spontaneously recreate these characters when I am in my studio, and invent stories around them. This method of working is essential because it brings my own truth to the work, and how I perceive the world I live in.
