Artist statement

“My type of art consists of design and a realistic form of pastel paintings. The concept is impressionistic to convey the beauty of nature that I see, using the medium of pastel with its vibrant pigments. Inspired by our delicate and endangered environment I focus on the extraordinary nature that surrounds us and try to capture the essence of the moment that inspires me and convey it to others.”
