We all know (and love) that quote “Earth without art is just – eh”. Why? Because it`s true. Art is an expression of our thoughts, emotions, intuitions, and desires, but it is even more personal than that – it’s about sharing the way we experience the world, which for many is an extension of personality. Art is a way of grasping the world!

I still remember the sound of the waterfalls and their power, I felt I was one. But in the paintings, I tried to portray the balance of ice and water, to recreate a fairytale environment through the use of soft and imaginative colours. I love being in nature, but I rarely encounter such fascinating and regenerating places.”
