"Painting is a poetry, prayer, longing, joy bursting, cry and a search…
Painting is my existential need, to express myself in color, shape and texture, in which the words are not enough...
A universal language, moving emotions with meaning, each person differently.
My creative process is a journey unknown and not designed.
Sources of inspiration are: music with many colors, sights and local landscapes forged in my mind, the emotional world and small moments of grace and excitement".
