"I like to play with water and to measure myself with the magic of nature, the figurative approach of my art has within it a level of abstraction that allows me to transmit emotions at a deeper level. My aim is to be able to explore more and more on different textures and with different techniques in order to capture the essence of light and movement. Art has the power to show different worlds generated from a blank canvas, I want to share this process through my work."
