"After college I started to travel to many foreign countries. The images I saw made deep impressions in mine experience.
I soon realized that I wanted to express these experiences, through drawing and painting. I visited museums, markets and other places where people gathered so that I could draw.
I also attended a private Art Academy in Amsterdam. I began to exhibit after finishing the Academy
Searching and creating innovations in visual art today is quite a challenge, since so much has already been done. Can figurative art be innovative and enrich? I believe it can. I'm passionate about discovering new ways of blending life with art."
