Artist's Statement  ::
Sounds, colors and shapes have accompanied my journey through life, since the dawn of my childhood. It was clear to me even then, that art would be a way of life for me.

I have studied painting, sculpting and music with wonderful teachers, who helped focus my attention on the fact that art is predominantly about observing and listening.

The essence of my creation is inspired by nature itself --not in the sense of “landscape paintings” but based on events and its mystical qualities: the contrasts, the rhythms, the never-ending transformations, the mystery, the enormous energies – all of which have affected my artistic microcosm.

Being a musician and a painter, I feel there is a wonderful interaction between music and painting where sound can be nourished by color, and a plastic piece “can play”.
