From daily routines to my sense of self, Mother Nature plays a central role in my life. I always find beauty and inspiration in nature. But beside of the physical amusement of the natural world, I like to reflect on how nature touches my inner self.
The purpose of my artistic work is to represent the human emotions, or a state of being that nature evoke or speaks to me while contemplating a green field, a beautiful garden, a splendid sunset or a quiet forest. In a symbolic manner I want to recreate by the use of color, forms, design or elements all these aspects of nature that provoke in me a reflection, a joyful moment or a time to heal.
I aim to depict the joy that nature inspires me to care for life. Also I want the viewer to self-reflect into their own moments of tranquility, wonder or explore their own connection to nature.
