"In creating a piece of art, I am inspired by the desire to transform, to confront, and to combine different materials. I stitch the canvas to assert my emotional presence."

Leaving traces is the key idea behind my paintings. Initially, these are traces of the memory on which are based the configurations of experiences lived, places visited, and faces seen. Next is the trace as a line, a trait, a chromatic element, or a plastic fragment. The themes of my paintings reflect my inner experiences of the world. This is a neo-expressionistic concept torn between abstraction and presence, just like the material of which memories are made.
