Looking for the kind of dimension that would allow me to give the spiritual elements that interest me, I created simple forms that depict human figures. Plain in appearance exempted from facial characteristics, hair splitting, but also with expression in their body.

«I am making images to communicate my feelings of the world. art is forever manifesting itself in new forms since there are forever new personalities. if the moment is right the paint itself actually begins to spread itself into forms and the important thing is to be there when the picture is painted..the artist is given the privilege of pointing the way and inspiring towards a better life..»
