Welcome to my Secret Garden!
Every painting is an adventure. By following my intuition I find my self surrounded by beautiful sceneries, exotic places and plants.
I try to grasp something with art that is otherwise impossible. Painting is a way to process visual and unconscious wisdom. Every painting opens up a new window into existence.
