Art is my oxygen
An avid photographer since early childhood, fiercely passionate for adventure and travel, I am fascinated with exploring the many diverse cultures and the intense beauty of this planet.
I love to capture vivid landscapes, authentic, down to earth people and unsuspecting organic elements.
Then back in my studio, using various media, I love to create a new and mysterious universe using transparencies, textures and vibrant colors evoking both the surrealism of the images and the mysteries of nature
