My artistic work represents my life and significant moments. Each work in itself approaches a realistic style with chiaroscuro, it is an expression of the self by transforming it at a psychological level with personal transitions from tense moments to moments full of happiness and an inner balance. My colorful explosive character, but also a line of calm and sensual colors, turn into different characters that shape my life. I use the black background for my works because the black highlights the lively colors, tempering them perfectly in their composition. I love to play with lines that offer volume and outlines in different characters in the details. The abstract gives me the freedom to create compositions that let the viewer wander in the details.
